    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
