Question https proxy (???)

my school of course is filtered through a proxy server when it comes to http. but it doesn't seem to do anything with https sites. is there a way i can use my linux box, set up a proxy that will allow us at school to get to whatever page we want? the idea is to put up an https site, which will not be blocked, and have the "blocked" pages sent to me through that https connection. i might not know what im talking about, please help me out here.

most probably there will be a firewall blocking stuff like this ... but if you have access rights to your home network you could try setting up squid at home.

would recommend a firewall-usage then and of course squid authentification.

It's done by setting up an https webpage outside the firewall that allows you to browse from the page in a frame.
Because your link outside cannot be looked at directly, or proxied, you can basically go anywhere from there.

But remember, you are still being logged through the filter and school administrators find great pleasure in punishing this type of behaviour. BE WARNED.
I am one of the people who does the log file searches and it can be found very easily.

Ive seen tunneling working many times but i have sadly never come to setting it up myself , The trick is to set up two PC's.
One at school and one at home. These PC's communicate over port 80 by using an custom protocol like ssh (or an web based ssl protocol). This then allows you to set up your own proxy from the ouside


-school side
pc with ssh client over port 80

pc with ssh server on port 80

You log in on the home pc and use lynx for example to browse.
I agree this is some kind of fake tunneling method.

But this is an real tunneling method

so maybe this is usefull.
