Placeshifter via Proxy


I have a question for placeshifter. I run a SSH Tunnel from my PC at work to my home PC via port443. How can I make Placeshifter/ or is it possible to make placeshifter try to connect via this tunnel?

Firewalls block anything but 443 and 80. Can't use 80 as Internet provider blocks that one, so that's why I have a SSH Tunnel on 443. It works with Explorer, I simply set the proxy as port 8080, and I'm then surfing the web from my home connection.

I've done it - my ssh runs on the regular port, so im not sure how you'll bork 443 in there, but the command I used was :

worklinux: /bin/ssh -C -L 31099:$HOME_IP_SAGE_SERVER:31099 me@myhomeDNS connection

This tunnels 31099 from home sage server to local host, you then run :

java -cp MiniClient.jar sage.miniclient.MiniClient -mac 00:01:23:45:67:89 localhost

My upload speed is too slow for it to be more of a proof of concept really...

the pblem is I am behind a corporate firewall. I can tunnel from work to my home PC, but can't stream the other way as the firewal blocks anything that is not 443 or 80 on our network firewall.
