Net::Proxy::Connector::connect_ssl - Create SSL/CONNECT tunnels through HTTP proxies

    # sample proxy using Net::Proxy::Connector::tcp
    #                and Net::Proxy::Connector::connect_ssl
    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_ssl',
            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();

Net::Proxy::Connecter::connect_ssl is a Net::Proxy::Connector that uses the HTTP CONNECT method to ask the proxy to create a tunnel to an outside server. The data is then encrypted using SSL.
Obviously, you'll need a server that understands SSL (or a proxy using Net::Proxy::Connector::ssl) at the other end.
This connector is only an "out" connector.
In addition to the options listed below, this connector accepts all "SSL_..." options to IO::Socket::SSL. They are transparently passed through to the appropriate IO::Socket::SSL methods when upgrading the socket to SSL.

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

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.

The Net::Proxy::Connector::connect_ssl connector has an extra method, obtained from Net::Proxy::Connector::ssl:

    $connector->upgrade_SSL( $sock )
This method will upgrade a cleartext socket to SSL. If the socket is already in SSL, it will "carp()".

Philippe 'BooK' Bruhat, "<book@cpan.org>".

Because Net::Proxy blocks when it tries to connect to itself, it wasn't possible to pass an SSL-encrypted connection through a proxy with a single script: you needed one for the SSL encapsulation, and another one for bypassing the proxy with the "CONNECT" HTTP method.
See Net::Proxy::Connector::connect and Net::Proxy::Connector::ssl for details.
