Remote access through HTTP Proxy


Hi,
I would like to ssh into my box at home, but at school we have a really restrictive HTTP proxy. I have permission from the administrator to try to get this working. The local administrator does not control this proxy...
  • I have tried httptunnel, desproxy and corkscrew with no success.
  • Running debian on both remote box and local laptop.
  • VNC would also do - I have not been able to get HTTPTunnel4VNC to work.

Am I hosed?

Thanks in advance

Can you explain that a bit more? What are the restrictions?

If you're saying only outgoing connections to port 80 on servers are allowed, then a very simple solution is to run sshd on port 80 on your home server.

HTTP connections to any port work. CONNECT is not enabled on the proxy.

Sorry for the brief reply but I have to run now... bye!

I must be missing something. The proxy server only allows http requests out? And this is not port-specific? So you're saying a request from firefox to http:/www(dot)yahoo(dot)com:550 would work, assuming that server was listening on 550?

If this is all true, I don't have any suggestions for how you can ssh to your box at home.

Yep, I run my webserver at home on :7777 which works fine... all traffic going to the outside world must go through this proxy

SSL connections are also supported through the proxy.
