TehFallen Posted November 30, 2011 Share Posted November 30, 2011 I have a scenario in which I am behind a firewall as restrictive enough to disallow SSH and IRC connections out. But HTTP and HTTPS requests are allowed. So I had this idea, what if I took an external server, did an HTTPS handshake with it, and connected like I was for any old HTTPS connection but the server sees that the request is from me and instead of serving back a webpage it served up an SSH connection or telnet. Actually it could be an unencrypted remote login because the HTTPS would be encrypting it, so for speed it might be better not to use SSH because we'd be double encrypting everything, the nice thing about SSH though is it's easy to proxy internet connections through, so essentially what I'm looking at is setting up a system where I can proxy my internet through HTTPS to my server on the outside and as far as network is concerned it's indistinguishable from real web browsing. Would this be possible? Has anyone done it? Could you point me in the right direction if so? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
