in thread TCP/UDP tunneling over HTTP

Hmmmm, this is a very intereting module indeed, but it still has lots of implementation to be done: it does not support UDP (even though the POD's idea shows the way) and it is not a complete solution because the only thing you get from that module is an open socket (a single function, the constructor, is implemented).

I cannot believe that nothing like I am looking for has ever been done! For sure I am not the first developer wanting to do something like this, and I hate like merlyn "to reinvent the wheel".

More wisdom appreciated!

    You might find a step for a hint here: http://www.nocrew.org/software/httptunnel.html
      This is actually by far the best pointer, because it acts transparently for the end-user application.

      The only problem with it is that it is a little off-topic since we are talking about Perl here, and also because:

      - it lacks "multiplexing abilities" - that is, management of several connections at the same time

      - it does not support UDP datagrams but only TCP connections tunneling

      Thanks anyway, this was helpful!
        No problem, I just meant that this app sort of did what you were looking for and was GPL. You might want to dig around the code and retro-perl it. ;>
