How does a HTTP tunnel works?
Hello guys,

I've been reading about tunnels but I still have some doubts regarding the HTTP tunnel.

I know the theory about the tunneling process, but I can't organize my ideas to fully understand the HTTP part.

What I have in mind:
- The server should be listening to a port.
- Any packet sent to that port should be encapsulated with HTTP.
- The server then sends the new package to a client through the port 8080.
- The client then receives the packets and remove the HTTP content and gets the original message.

Is it right or am I make confusion? Can someone explain to me the encapsulation process?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Best regards,
klopersky
