Where/How do I change the code of openvpn packets to HTTP

Post by sapirguy » Sun Oct 03, 2010 7:59 pm

From what I understand OpenVPN creates VPN packets and send them between clients which cummonicates between themselves. I managed to connect between computer thru different networks on port 80 and changed UDP definition to TCP using a VPN server but on some networks which allows only to HTTP packets go thru it, it fails to connect to server and of course cliens cant communicate using openvpn

In the situation above some programs like skype in exrememe case when it communication packets are thrown away by all kind of resrictions it turns into web HTTP packet and it work fine so for this example skype work great like it was sent thru web pages.

I would like to know how to do it for openvpn and which files handle it so it will create pure HTTP packets that are send between clients in openvpn. In this way open vpn will be much powerfull in computer communication.

Hope someone can help soon.

Thanks,

Guy Sapir

you can use a http proxy
read about the config option --http-proxy in the manual here:
