Direct Connect from behind http authentication proxy

Postby sayansg » 2018-09-15 08:37

Hello Everyone,

I connect to internet through http authentication proxy that blocks most ports apart from 80,443, 8080, 8443 and a few others. Browsers work just fine (as expected). I can use torrents even though 6881-6891 are blocked. Maybe some other 50000+ port is being used, I don't know. (I use Deluge)

I cannot use DC++ or mldonkey.

In DC, I can get hublist and connect to individual hubs but cannot download or search. Incoming ports 3000, 3001 are most probably blocked by ISP firewall. In mldonkey 4080 port is blocked.

Is there any way to use these two software from behind firewalled http proxy?

Thanks in advance.

If the proxy doesn't allow the CONNECT method, then you need to find some way of encapsulating traffic over HTTP(S).

This ( looks really cool but I haven't tested it (I'd have an actual need for it, but even trying it just for the fun of it could get me in trouble). If you can test it, then please report back! :)
