       Net::Proxy::Connector::connect - Create CONNECT tunnels through HTTP proxies


           # sample proxy using Net::Proxy::Connector::tcp
           #                and Net::Proxy::Connector::connect
           use Net::Proxy;

           # listen on localhost:6789
           # and proxy to remotehost:9876 through
           # using the given credentials
           my $proxy = Net::Proxy->new(
               in  => { type => 'tcp', port => '6789' },
               out => {
                   type        => 'connect',
                   host        => 'remotehost',
                   port        => '9876',
                   proxy_host  => '',
                   proxy_port  => '8080',
                   proxy_user  => 'jrandom',
                   proxy_pass  => 's3kr3t',
                   proxy_agent => 'Mozilla/4.04 (X11; I; SunOS 5.4 sun4m)',



       "Net::Proxy::Connecter::connect" is a "Net::Proxy::Connector" that uses the HTTP CONNECT
       method to ask the proxy to create a tunnel to an outside server.

       Be aware that some proxies are set up to deny the creation of some outside tunnels (either
       to ports other than 443 or outside a specified set of outside hosts).

       This connector is only an "out" connector.


       "Net::Proxy::Connector::connect" accepts the following options:


       ·   host

           The destination host.

       ·   port

           The destination port.

       ·   proxy_host

           The web proxy name or address.

       ·   proxy_port

           The web proxy port.

       ·   proxy_user

           The authentication username for the proxy.

       ·   proxy_pass

           The authentication password for the proxy.

       ·   proxy_agent

           The user-agent string to use when connecting to the proxy.

       All the authentication schemes supported by "LWP::UserAgent" should be supported (we use
       an "LWP::UserAgent" internally to contact the proxy).

       This means we should also support NTLM, since it is supported as from "libwww-perl" 5.66.
       "Net::Proxy::Connector::connect" has not been actually tested with NTLM, though. Any
       report of success or failure with a NTLM proxy will be appreciated.


       This module is based on my script "connect-tunnel", that provided a command-line interface
       to create tunnels though HTTP proxies.  It was first published on CPAN on March 2003.

       A better version of "connect-tunnel" (using "Net::Proxy") is provided this distribution.
