ssh-http-proxy-connect - Secure Shell proxy for HTTP SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/ssh/ssh-http-proxy-connect [-h http_proxy_host] [-p http_proxy_port] connect_host connect_port DESCRIPTION
A proxy command for ssh(1) that uses HTTP CONNECT. Typical use is where connections external to a network are only allowed via a proxy web server. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -h http_proxy_host Specifies the proxy web server through which to connect. Overrides the HTTPPROXY and http_proxy environment vari- ables if they are set. -p http_proxy_port Specifies the port on which the proxy web server runs. If not specified, port 80 is assumed. Overrides the HTTP- PROXYPORT and http_proxy environment variables if they are set. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: http_proxy_host The host name or IP address (IPv4 or IPv6) of the proxy. http_proxy_port The numeric port number to connect to on http_proxy_host. connect_host The name of the remote host to which the proxy web server is to connect you. connect_port The numeric port number of the proxy web server to connect you to on http_proxy_host. EXAMPLES
The recommended way to use a proxy connection command is to configure the ProxyCommand in ssh_config(4) (see Example 1 and Example 2). Example 3 shows how the proxy command can be specified on the command line when running ssh(1). Example 1: Setting the proxy from the environment The following example uses ssh-http-proxy-connect in ssh_config(4) when the proxy is set from the environment: Host ProxyCommand /usr/lib/ssh/ssh-http-proxy-connect 22 Example 2: Overriding proxy environment variables The following example uses ssh-http-proxy-connect in ssh_config(4) to override (or if not set) proxy environment variables: Host ProxyCommand /usr/lib/ssh/ssh-http-proxy-connect -h webcache -p 8080 22 Example 3: Using the command line The following example uses ssh-http-proxy-connect from the ssh(1) command line: example$ ssh -o'ProxyCommand="/usr/lib/ssh/ssh-http-proxy-connect -h webcache -p 8080 22"' ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
HTTPPROXY Takes the http_proxy_host operand to specify the default proxy host. Overrides http_proxy if both are set. HTTPPROXYPORT Takes the http_proxy_port operand to specify the default proxy port. Ignored if HTTPPROXY is not set. http_proxy URL format for specifying proxy host and port. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. 1 An error occurred. ATTRIBUTES

PROXYTUNNEL(1)						      General Commands Manual						    PROXYTUNNEL(1)

proxytunnel - program to tunnel a connection throught an standard HTTPS proxy. SYNOPSIS
proxytunnel [options] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents the proxytunnel command. proxytunnel is a program that open a tunnel through a HTTPS proxy. OPTIONS
This program follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). -h, --help Print help and exit. -V, --version Print the version of the program and exit. -i, --inetd Run from inetd. Default is off. -a PORT, --standalone=PORT Run as standalone daemon on specified port. -p host:port, --proxy=host:port The local HTTPS proxy host:port combo to connect to. -r host:port, --remproxy=host:port The second-level (remote) proxy host:port to connect to when using two proxies. -d host:port, --dest=host:port The destination host:port to built the tunnel to. -e, --encrypt Encrypt the data between the local proxy and the destination using SSL. -E, --encrypt-proxy Encrypt the data between the client and the local proxy using SSL. -B, --buggy-encrypt-proxy Encrypt the data between the client and the local proxy using SSL, but stop using SSL immediately after the CONNECT exchange to workaround server bugs. (Might not work on all setups; see /usr/share/doc/proxytunnel/README.Debian.gz for more details.) -X, --encrypt-remproxy Encrypt the data between the local proxy and the second-level proxy using SSL. -F STRING, --passfile=STRING The file containing Username & Password to send to HTTPS proxy for authentification. This file uses the same format as .wgetrc, and so can use the credentials in common with wget. This option can be used to at least hide the password from anyone clever enough to use the `ps' command. -P user:pass, --proxyauth=user:pass The credentials to use for local HTTP(S) proxy authentication. -R user:pass, --remproxyauth=user:pass The credentials to use for remote HTTP(S) proxy authentication. -N, --ntlm Use NTLM-based authentication. -t DOMAIN, --domain=DOMAIN The NTLM domain to use, default is to autodetect. -H STRING, --header=STRING Additional HTTP headers to send to the proxy. -x STRING, --proctitle=STRING Use a different process title. -v, --verbose Turn on verbosity. Default is off. -q, --quiet Suppress messages. Default is off. NOTES
To use this program with OpenSSH to connect to a host somewhere, create a $HOME/.ssh/config file with the following content: Host foobar ProtocolKeepAlives 30 ProxyCommand /usr/bin/proxytunnel -p -P user:password -d If your proxy doesn't require the username and password for using it, you can skip these options. If you want to run proxytunnel from inetd add the '--inetd' option. Most HTTPS proxies do not allow access to ports other than 443 (HTTPS) and 563 (SNEWS), so some hacking is necessary to start the SSH dae- mon on the required port. (On the server side add an extra Port statement in the sshd_config file) AUTHOR
