SOHT (Socket over HTTP Tunneling) allows you to tunnel socket connections through an HTTP proxy. Restrictive firewalls often prohibit all outgoing trafic except for HTTP. This application allows you to tunnel socket connections over the HTTP protocol. This application consists of a server that serves as a proxy and a client which tunnels a socket connection over an HTTP connection to the server. The current server is written in Java, and there are clients in Java and .NET.
