+httptunnel creates a bidirectional virtual connection tunnelled in
+HTTP requests, and the HTTP requests can be sent via an HTTP proxy
+if so desired. This can be useful for users behind restrictive
+firewalls. If WWW access is allowed through a HTTP proxy, it's
+possible to use httptunnel and e.g. telnet or PPP to connect to
+another computer outside the firewall.
