HTTPTunnel is a simple client/server application for creating an HTTP tunnel between two machines, optionally via a Web proxy. This tunnel can then be used to wrap arbitrary TCP socket traffic in HTTP, thus allowing communications even through a restrictive firewall that only allows outgoing HTTP connections.

Release Notes: This version adds experimental support for TCP/UDP tunnels over IPv6. It also includes changes to substantially improve the throughput when tunneling to streaming sites and other high-bandwidth applications, plus the usual batch of bugfixes and minor tweaks.
Release Notes: This release fixes a few long-standing server polling bugs.
Release Notes: This release provides basic tunnel server user authentication; users allowed to connect to the the server can now be specified in the configuration file. This release also fixes a long standing potential deadlock in the server when using SSL tunnels.
Release Notes: The HTTPTunnel code is now based on a reusable HTTP tunneling library (libhttptun, included in this source archive). This release includes improvements for tunneling high bandwidth connections, plus the usual minor bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release introduces experimental support for NTLM proxy authentication and tidies proxy authentication in general.
