corkscrew \- Tunnel TCP connections through HTTP proxies
.B corkscrew
[ authfile ]
This manual page documents briefly the
.BR corkscrew
This manual page was written for the Debian distribution
because the original program does not have a manual page.
corkscrew is a simple tool to tunnel TCP connections through an HTTP
proxy supporting the CONNECT method. It reads stdin and writes to
stdout during the connection, just like netcat.
It can be used for instance to connect to an SSH server running on
a remote 443 port through a strict HTTPS proxy.
.B proxy
This is the name of the host running the HTTP proxy.
.B proxyport
This is the port on which to connect on the proxy.
.B target
This is the host to reach through the proxy.
.B targetport
This is the port to connect to on the target host.
The common usage of corkscrew is to put the following line in your
ProxyCommand corkscrew proxy proxyport %h %p
This will let your ssh connection go through the proxy with the help
of corkscrew.
The auth file is made of one single line containing your username and
password in the form:
You should add the path to your auth file in the proxy command
described above:
ProxyCommand corkscrew proxy proxyport %h %p auth-file
