           Summary: Allow ssh-connections through a HTTP proxy (such as
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.8.1p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: openssh-bugs at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: andreas.krueger at famsik.de

A plain vanilla HTTP-Proxy will happily forward any tcp/ip-connection for web
browsers or any other program that asks it to do so.

This can be used to establish a connection to a remote sshd, even through a
local firewall (in common firewalled situations).

I would very much like to see the neccessary functionality to actually do this
added to ssh.

(For the time being, one can probably get this up and running via
"-o ProxyCommand" somehow, given appropriate external software.)
