I've used proxytunnel and corkscrew under linux. I think httptunnel also
exists. What you basically do is add a ProxyCommand in your ssh.conf
file so that when connecting to an SSH server it executes a proxy
command to tunnel the traffic.

Please note that some companies don't have a proxy but restrict acces to
port 80 only. I've worked around that setting up an apache proxy server
under port 80 and then allowing connect to port 22 under apache.

This last setup doesn't seem to work under putty when using virtual
servers on the same port as the apache.

Description: TCP/IP packet repeater in the application layer. TCP/IP
packet repeater in the application layer. It repeats TCP and UDP
packets from inside to outside of a firewall, or from outside to inside.
Stone supports SSL. stone can encrypt/decrypt packets with OpenSSL
library. Stone can also be a tiny http proxy. POP -> APOP
conversion. With stone and a mailer that does not support APOP, you
can access to an APOP server.
