Bypass firewall restrictions via an HTTPS proxy
Authored by: TrumpetPower! on Aug 19, '05 03:23:06PM

For those of you who are a bit put off by compliling programs or installing them into /use/local/bin, you can get a Tiger package of prtunnel, a program that does the same basic thing, thanks to DarwinPorts.



P.S. Of course, this means that, if you’ve got DarwinPorts installed, a simple “sudo port install prtunnel” will do the trick, as well. b&

Bypass firewall restrictions via an HTTPS proxy

Oh that is smart...,

but how in hell's name can i work with darwinports if running the 'port'-command fails everytime because it won't work with the proxy.

You can set your environmentvariables (RSYNC_PROXY, .curlrc) what you want, darwinports uses rsync and a specific SSL port which is blocked; so NO SHOW.

Any ideas how to run 'port' in an alienated windowscontroled mac-fearing ICT-landscape?
