Tunnels TCP connections over ping requests and replies
'PTunnel' reliably tunnels TCP connections over ICMP echo request and reply packets (aka ping requests and replies). It evades firewalls that prevent outgoing TCP connections, but allow in- and outgoing ICMP packets. The tunnel works by having a proxy run on a machine ping-able from the inside of the firewall; the client runs on the local machine from which TCP access is required.
