iamsure asks: "At my workplace, we have stringent rules on our firewall that filter out particular protocols (telnet/ssh being the one that is difficult for me). I actually work on the Security team, and as such, support such rules, as it helps reduce the number of incidents. However, I would very much like to access my machines from the outside via ssh, without making exceptions on the firewalls. After having tried http-tunnel (whose dual websites have gone offline, same for their server), and after having tried redirection of ports (the firewalls block the protocol, NOT the port), I am rather stumped. How does the rest of the slashdot reading public get through their firewalls? There does seem to be a decent project underway at SocksViaHTTP , however, I was wondering if there are any other projects?"
