Webtunnel 0.0.5 Released – HTTP Encapsulation and Tunnel Tool

Check Your Web Security with Acunetix

Webtunnel is a network utility that encapsulates arbitrary data in HTTP and transmits it through a web server.

In that regard, it is similar to httptunnel, however, it has several key important differences: its server component runs in the context of a web server as a CGI application (with optional FastCGI support) so it does not need its own port, and supports most things that the web server supports, such as authentication, HTTP 1.1, HTTPS, and client certificates; it uses simple requests and responses so it works seamlessly through forward and reverse proxies; it is multi-threaded (actually multi-process using sockets for inter-process communication) to allow multiple parallel connections to multiple destinations simultaneously.

What’s New?

  • Added support for proxy auto-configuration
  • Fixed a bug that would cause a keep-alive timeout to stop the tunnel
  • Fixed a fork handling bug to support ActivePerl’s negative PIDs
