MUST BE RAN AS ROOT
Authored by: skinlayers on Aug 03, '01 01:59:48PM

I found with some experimentation that both htc and hts must be ran as root. There are a couple of ways of doing this:
1)sudo
using the above example in the instructions:
sudo hts -F 127.0.0.1:548 666
and
sudo htc -F 548 -P 10.0.0.1:8888 123.456.789.10:666
and enter your admin password at the prompts.
This executes this specific command as root.
2)sudo tcsh
this starts another tcsh (the default Terminal shell in OS X) as root. Becareful, anything you do while in this terminal session will be done as root.
3)su
or
su root
You may only use this option if you have previously enabled the root user <see above warning>.

MUST BE RAN AS ROOT
Authored by: lirapd on Sep 05, '02 12:53:53PM

Has anyone been able to get this to work? Whenever I type htc or even hts the command is unknown. I looked into my /user/local/bin and didn't see anything. Should there be files here? Should httptunnel-3.0.5.tar.gz be in your /user/local/bin when you ./configure it? Please help!
