hts(1) httptunnel server


hts [options] [host:][port]


This manual page briefly documents the hts command.

hts listens for incoming httptunnel connections at PORT (default port is 8888), and optionally binds to ip address HOST. When a connection is made, I/O is redirected to the destination specified by the --device or --forward-port switch.
