GNU Httptunnel
Creates a data path in HTTP requests

Creates a bidirectional virtual data path tunnelled in HTTP requests. These requests can also be sent by an HTTP proxy, which is useful for users behind firewalls. If Web access is allowed through a proxy, it's possible to use httptunnel and telnet or PPP to connect to a computer outside the firewall.
