SOHT Socket over HTTP Tunneling
The Java client can be downloaded as a binary distribution or a source distribution.
To install the client, create a directory and extract the contents of the zip file into that directory.
The client uses a properties file to map local ports to remote hosts. A sample file has been included. Please modify this file to suit your needs.
The client is packaged as executable .JAR file. You can start it with the following command:
java -jar soht-client-<version>.jar
where <version> matches the current version you are using. You must either have a soht.properties file in your current directory or specify one as an argument, such as:
java -jar soht-client-<version>.jar c:\soht.properties
Once the mappings are configured and the client is started, you can begin using your client applications. Make sure the clients are pointed at localhost using the proper port. For example, if you setup a mapping from local port 1000 to a remote telnet host, you would telnet to localhost on port 1000.
If you are using a SOHT server that requires a login, specify the username and password in the properties file, as well as setting the server.loginrequired property to true.
If you use a HTTP Proxy server to access the internet, you can configure the client to use the HTTP Proxy using the soht.properties file.
If you would like to use the SOCKS Proxy server feature you must enable it in the propeties file. To use this with your web browser, set the 'SOCKS Host' setting to localhost:1080 (assuming you use the default port).
