|-h, --help||Print help and exit.|
|kPrint the version of the program and exit.|
|Run from inetd. Default is off.|
|-F STRING, --passfile=STRING|
|The file containing Username & Password to send to HTTPS proxy for authentification. This file uses the same format as .wgetrc, and so can use the credentials in common with wget. This option can be used to at least hide the password from anyone clever enough to use the ps command.|
|-p STRING, --proxy=STRING|
|The HTTPS Proxy host:port combo to connect to.|
|-P STRING, --proxyauth=STRING|
|The credentials (user:pass) to use for local HTTP(S) proxy authentication.|
|-d STRING, --dest=STRING|
|The destination host:port to built the tunnel to.|
|-r STRING, --remproxy=STRING|
|The second-level proxy host:port to connect to.|
|-R STRING, --remproxyauth=STRING|
|The credentials (user:pass) to use for remote HTTP(S) proxy authentication.|
|Turn on verbosity. Default is off.|
Suppress messages. Default is off.
To use this program with OpenSSH to connect to a host somewhere, create a $HOME/.ssh/config file with the following content:
ProxyCommand /usr/bin/proxytunnel -p proxy.customer.com:8080 -u user -s password -d mybox.athome.nl:443
If your proxy doesnt require the username and password for using it, you can skip these options.
If you want to run proxytunnel from inetd add the --inetd option.
Most HTTPS proxies do not allow access to ports other than 443 (HTTPS) and 563 (SNEWS), so some hacking is necessary to start the SSH daemon on the required port. (On the server side add an extra Port statement in the sshd_config file)
