Broke through the proxy

I did it! I broke through the proxy! Although TightVNC runs ridiculously slow through Httport. I’m getting speeds like 137b/s. I wonder if I can make it faster.

Doing things that are probably illegal

Ok, so if comments aren’t showing up, it’s because of newlines… I need to fix that. I thought I had taken care of it, but apparently not… hmmm…

Anyway, at work I am trying to tunnel through our proxy. M$ has to screw everything up with the proprietary NTLM authorization. Stupid Microsoft. I probably shouldn’t be trying to tunnel through the corporate proxy. Well, tough. They should let me have access to everything I want access too.

This is probably why people say I shouldn’t be let anywhere near a computer. Oh come on! That’s just a major overreaction.


I’m finally able to ssh to my machine at home from work! We have a proxy that doesn’t let me ssh to anything outside the corporate network. So I found out about this thing called httptunnel that let’s you forward connections from your local machine, to the proxy, and from the proxy to a specific port on your server. I set up a server running on one of the ports on my FreeBSD machine and then ran the client program from here to forward all connections from port 22 on the localhost to the proxy. The proxy then takes the information from the client and connects to the port on the FreeBSD machine where the daemon is listening. Pretty sweet!
