SYNOPSIS

proxytunnel [options]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents the proxytunnel command.

proxytunnel is a program that open a tunnel through a HTTPS proxy.

OPTIONS

This program follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (‘-’).
-h, --help Print help and exit.
-V, --version
  kPrint the version of the program and exit.
-i, --inetd
  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.
-v, --verbose
  Turn on verbosity. Default is off.
-q, --quiet
  Suppress messages. Default is off.

NOTES

To use this program with OpenSSH to connect to a host somewhere, create a $HOME/.ssh/config file with the following content:

Host foobar
        ProtocolKeepAlives 30
        ProxyCommand /usr/bin/proxytunnel -p proxy.customer.com:8080 -u user -s password -d mybox.athome.nl:443

If your proxy doesn’t 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)
