NO FURTHER DISCUSSION HERE PLEASE - MODS, CLOSE THIS ONE


Hi all,
I finally understood that HTTP tunnelling is a complex procedure. What is want is a http-tunnelling software for linux, pref. for RH 7.2 distro. Let me explain my needs too. I connect to the internet through our institutes LAN. And, I want to download some movies from this guy who sets up through some odd ports like 50024 etc. Now, is http-tunnelling useful for diverting the information to port 80?

i cant really advise you much here as any suggestion i give will aid you in circumventing your administrators firewall which is technically illegal, and the mods here dont like it. what i can say is for http tunnelling to work or in fact any kind of tunnelling you need a machine on the outside of the firewall that listens to that port and relays your requests which it doesnt sound like you have.

well, i donno much about tunnelling...but doesn't http-tunnelling software listen to the port i mentioned and relay it thru another port?

And, sorry for this post...I didn't even think that i was doing something illegal...been dumb so lately..

sorry mods, no more discussions in this thread...can you send it to some attic or remove this?

<edit> if you want the thread closed click report post to moderator.

your idea:
Code:
{your computer}<-->{firewall}<-->{his computer}
the admins firewall does not allow you to connect to outside machines on port 50024, it does however let you connect to outside machines on port 80, so you install some software that translates port 50024 to 80(easily done with iptables) so, data on port 80 gets past the firewall and reaches his machine on port 80 but he's not listening on port 80 he's listening on port 50024 so you need something between him and the firewall to translate your port 80 requests back to port 50024. hope that makes it clearer.

i think the mods are ok as long as we dont discuss anything explicity illegal and i think a description of tunnelling is ok.
