HTTPort 3 quick overview
HTTPort allows you to bypass an HTTP proxy, which is blocking you from the Internet. With HTTPort you may use the following software (just a sample list, not limited to !) from behind an HTTP proxy: e-mail, IRC, ICQ, news, FTP, AIM, any SOCKS capable software, etc. etc.

The basic idea is that you set up your Internet software in such a manner, that it considers your local PC to be a remote server it needs. This is where HTTPort enters. It intercepts connection from this software and runs the connection through the proxy - this is called a tunneling.

HTTPort performs tunneling using one of two modes. The following schemes will give you the idea.
