NAME

Net::Proxy::Connector::connect - Create CONNECT tunnels through HTTP proxies

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    # sample proxy using Net::Proxy::Connector::tcp
    #                and Net::Proxy::Connector::connect
    use Net::Proxy;

    # listen on localhost:6789
    # and proxy to remotehost:9876 through proxy.company.com:8080
    # using the given credentials
    my $proxy = Net::Proxy->new(
        in  => { type => tcp, port => 6789 },
        out => {
            type        => connect,
            host        => remotehost,
            port        => 9876,
            proxy_host  => proxy.company.com,
            proxy_port  => 8080,
            proxy_user  => jrandom,
            proxy_pass  => s3kr3t,
            proxy_agent => Mozilla/4.04 (X11; I; SunOS 5.4 sun4m),
        },
    );
    $proxy->register();

    Net::Proxy->mainloop();



DESCRIPTION

Net::Proxy::Connecter::connect is a Net::Proxy::Connector that uses the HTTP CONNECT method to ask the proxy to create a tunnel to an outside server.

Be aware that some proxies are set up to deny the creation of some outside tunnels (either to ports other than 443 or outside a specified set of outside hosts).

This connector is only an out connector.

CONNECTOR OPTIONS

Net::Proxy::Connector::connect accepts the following options:

out

host The destination host.
port The destination port.
proxy_host The web proxy name or address.
proxy_port The web proxy port.
proxy_user The authentication username for the proxy.
proxy_pass The authentication password for the proxy.
proxy_agent The user-agent string to use when connecting to the proxy.

AUTHOR

Philippe ’BooK’ Bruhat, <book@cpan.org>.

BUGS

All the authentication schemes supported by LWP::UserAgent should be supported (we use an LWP::UserAgent internally to contact the proxy).

This means we should also support NTLM, since it is supported as from libwww-perl 5.66. Net::Proxy::Connector::connect has not been actually tested with NTLM, though. Any report of success or failure with a NTLM proxy will be appreciated.

HISTORY

This module is based on my script connect-tunnel, that provided a command-line interface to create tunnels though HTTP proxies. It was first published on CPAN on March 2003.

A better version of connect-tunnel (using Net::Proxy) is provided this distribution.
