corkscrew PROXY PROXYPORT TARGETHOST TARGETPORT [AUTH_FILE]
DESCRIPTIONcorkscrew is a simple tool to tunnel TCP connections through an HTTP proxy supporting the CONNECT method. It reads stdin and writes to std- out 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.
- The name of the host running the HTTP proxy.
- The port on which to connect on the proxy.
- The host to reach through the proxy.
- The port to connect to on the target host.
- AUTH_ FILE
The auth file is made of one single line containing your username and
password in the form
EXAMPLESThe common usage of corkscrew is to put the following line in ~/.ssh/ssh_config:
ProxyCommand corkscrew proxy proxyport %h %p [<path to auth_file>]
This will let the ssh connection go through the proxy with the help of corkscrew.
