NAME ^

Net::Proxy::Connector::connect - Create CONNECT tunnels through HTTP proxies

SYNOPSIS ^

    # sample proxy using Net::Proxy::Connector::tcp
    #                and Net::Proxy::Connector::connect
    use Net::Proxy;

    # listen on localhost:6789
    # and proxy to remotehost:9876 through proxy.company.com:8080
    # using the given credentials
    my $proxy = Net::Proxy->new(
        in  => { type => 'tcp', port => '6789' },
        out => {
            type        => 'connect',
            host        => 'remotehost',
            port        => '9876',
            proxy_host  => 'proxy.company.com',
            proxy_port  => '8080',
            proxy_user  => 'jrandom',
            proxy_pass  => 's3kr3t',
            proxy_agent => 'Mozilla/4.04 (X11; I; SunOS 5.4 sun4m)',
        },
    );
    $proxy->register();

    Net::Proxy->mainloop();

DESCRIPTION ^

Net::Proxy::Connecter::connect is a Net::Proxy::Connector that uses the HTTP CONNECT method to ask the proxy to create a tunnel to an outside server.

Be aware that some proxies are set up to deny the creation of some outside tunnels (either to ports other than 443 or outside a specified set of outside hosts).

This connector is only an "out" connector.

CONNECTOR OPTIONS ^

Net::Proxy::Connector::connect accepts the following options:

out ^

BUGS ^

All the authentication schemes supported by LWP::UserAgent should be supported (we use an LWP::UserAgent internally to contact the proxy).

This means we should also support NTLM, since it is supported as from libwww-perl 5.66. Net::Proxy::Connector::connect has not been actually tested with NTLM, though. Any report of success or failure with a NTLM proxy will be appreciated.

HISTORY ^

This module is based on my script connect-tunnel, that provided a command-line interface to create tunnels though HTTP proxies. It was first published on CPAN on March 2003.

A better version of connect-tunnel (using Net::Proxy) is provided this distribution.
