I need an HTTP tunnelling solution to use applications through my
restrictive corporate firewall.

Something similar to the software provided by, which
creates a proxy locally through which all applications can be routed;
the proxy then wraps all packets in https data requests so that the
firewall allows them through, and then they get decrypted by
http-tunnel servers which send them on to their destination.

I have a server at home, so I wouldn't mind if the solution requires a
server program and a client program, but I would also be happy with a
program that uses a company's servers and charges for them, so you
only need a client program.

I am willing to pay monthly or as required. seemed perfect until I found out that it relies on IP
addresses, to which HTTP requests are filtered to my network.
Otherwise it would have been perfect.

Many Thanks.

You can use http port at

There is a server/client and client-only solution. It works from
behind most firewalls.
