Wrong option?
Authored by: bonkydooky on Feb 28, '06 03:37:07PM
I tried this as he said and Proxytunnel says "unknown option -- g" I found it starts up successfully if you use this format: sudo ./proxytunnel -a 21 -p hostname:8080 -d hostname:port -v Note the path to proxytunnel assumes you're in the same directory as the binary. I don't have it working just yet.

New command line syntax in proxytunnel 1.6
Authored by: stephanos on Mar 09, '06 02:56:28AM

Proxytunnel 1.6.0 changed (and simplified) the command line syntax a bit. The basics of the hint still apply. I'm sorry this hint is arcane by the standards of the layperson, but since it's all about circumventing access restrictions I feel that can be a plus; if you don't know enough about networking to use it, you probably shouldn't try. I don't even use proxytunnel any more because I switched from iChat to Adium (which can do this trick internally, and moreover takes proxy settings from system preferences which I switch using the Location menu) and I can live without my gmail (which is not my primary email anyway) during the day.

Errors trying to connect
Authored by: RogerSilvaCastro on Aug 23, '07 10:22:53AM

Hi all,
I´m trying to use this hint to log in MSN.
Therefore, I've tried executing the following command:

proxytunnel -a 522 -p (Proxy Server address) :(Proxy Server Port) -d

However, when I try to log in MSN application (after setting Internet Explore Proxy settings to "Proxy Server = localhost", and "Proxy Port=522"), then Proxytunel gives me the following error:

Proxy Error ( The specified Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) port is not allowed. ISA
Server is not configured to allow SSL requests from this port. Most Web browsers
use port 443 for SSL requests. )
0 to 65536

Please, May someone help me with this issue?

thanks in advance
