Using BarbaTunnel with an upstream proxy server.

Jun 30, 2012 at 11:57 AM

My company blocks all internet traffic and forces us to use a proxy server/gateway to access the outside. I think this gateway uses NTLM authentication, but I'm not sure.

In the firefox and internet explorer settings it looks like they download a PAC file (proxy auto configuration).

Anyway, can I use BarbaTunnel to get past this? I'd like to be able to use ssh to get to my home linux machine, but this is blocked, of course.

Thanks

BarbaTunnel will not work If you need to set web proxy server in your browser settings, because I didn't implement it. It is possible to implement but I think proxy server not used commonly, companies usually use transparent proxies that does not set set in browser proxy.

BarbaTunnel work with transparent proxies and firewall.
