NAME
       prtunnel	- tunnels TCP connections through HTTP or SOCKS5 proxies

SYNOPSIS
       prtunnel	 [-DVc6hv] [-t proxy-type] [-H proxy-host] [-P proxy-port] [-T
       address]	[-u username] [-p password]  [--password-prompt]  [--http-1.0]
       [--telnet-keep-alive  interval]	[--crlf-keep-alive  interval]  [--irc-
       auto-pong] [--timeout time] [--server-timeout  time]  [--help]  [--ver-
       sion] local-port	[remote-host remote-port]

DESCRIPTION
       prtunnel	 tunnels  TCP  connections  through  an	 HTTP  or SOCKS5 proxy
       server. It is useful if you're behind such a proxy and want  to	use  a
       program that doesn't have native	proxy support.

       local-port  is  the port	that prtunnel will listen for a	connection on.
       remote-host and remote-port are the hostname/address and	port,  respec-
       tively, of the remote server that the connection	will be	tunneled to.

       If  run without the <remote host> and <remote port> arguments, prtunnel
       will accept SOCKS4/SOCKS5 commands from the client to determine the re-
       mote server to connect to.

OPTIONS
       -D     Run  as a	daemon.	prtunnel will run in the background and	accept
	      multiple TCP connections with this option.

       -V     Turns on verbose output; all data	transferred will be printed to
	      standard output

       -c     Use color	to differentiate between incoming and outgoing data in
	      verbose output; without this, each line of outgoing verbose out-
	      put will begin with ">>> " and incoming output with "<<< "

       -6     Enables  IPv6 mode. This doesn't affect the way outgoing connec-
	      tions are	made with the direct/direct6 tunneling	modes;	direct
	      will  always  connect  with IPv4 and direct6 will	always connect
	      with IPv6.

       -t tunnel-mode
	      Set tunneling mode; http (default), socks5, direct  and  direct6
	      are  supported.  With  http and socks5, you must specify the ad-
	      dress of an http/socks5 proxy to use. direct will	make  prtunnel
	      connect  directly	to the remote host specified; direct6 does the
	      same, but	with IPv6 instead of IPv4.

       -H proxy-host
	      Set proxy	server hostname

       -P proxy-port
	      Set proxy	server port; defaults are  8080	 for  http,  1080  for
	      socks5

       -T address
	      Add  a  trusted address. For security reasons, only localhost is
	      trusted by default. Only connections from	trusted	addresses  are
	      allowed.	You  can specify an address itself (like 10.0.0.0), or
	      in the form of address/bitcheck, where bitcheck is the number of
	      leading bits to compare; for example, 10.0.0.0/24	would mean any
	      address in the range of 10.0.0.0 to 10.0.0.255.

       -u username
	      Set username to use for proxy authentication

       -p password
	      Set password to use for proxy authentication

       --password-prompt
	      Prompt for proxy username	and password

       --http-1.0
	      Use HTTP/1.0 instead of HTTP/1.1 for HTTP	connections

       --telnet-keep-alive interval
	      Causes prtunnel to send keep-alive data at the specified	inter-
	      val, using the telnet NOP	command

       --crlf-keep-alive interval
	      Causes  prtunnel to send keep-alive data at the specified	inter-
	      val, using a CRLF	(this works for	some text-based	protocols)

       --irc-auto-pong
	      Causes prtunnel to automatically respond to PING	commands  sent
	      by IRC servers.

       --timeout time
	      Allows  you  to  set  a client socket timeout; if	no data	is re-
	      cieved from the client for <time>	seconds, the  connection  will
	      be closed

       --server-timeout	time
	      Allows  you  to  set  a server socket timeout; if	no data	is re-
	      cieved from the remote host for <time> seconds,  the  connection
	      will be closed

       -h, --help
	      Show help	message

       -v, --version
	      Show version information

EXAMPLE
       prtunnel	-H proxy 6667 irc.freenode.net 6667

       After  starting	prtunnel like this, you	could then point an IRC	client
       to 127.0.0.1, and prtunnel will attempt to connect  you	to  irc.freen-
       ode.net via the HTTP proxy server on a system named "proxy".
