HTTP-Tunnel is an application that allows one to encrypt and tunnel network traffic over port 80 via the HTTP protocol. (TCP/IP over HTTP)
HTTP-Tunnel's uses include bypassing restrictive firewalls, hiding one's traffic from any party that may be watching the network.
HTTP-Tunnel provides a free, rate-limited service in addition to a faster, competitively-priced subscription service.
FreeCap may be another application of interest to HTTP-Tunnel users as it works well under Wine and allows users to tunnel application that are not proxy-aware.
Installation notes: please ensure that you have installed the MS Core Fonts and the Visual C++ runtime before attempting to install/use this application.

In order for HTTP-Tunnel to run correctly, you must install the MS Core Fonts and the Visual C++ 6.0 runtime. The easiest way to do this is via Dan Kegel's winetricks script.
Open a terminal window and run these commands:
1.) wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
2.) sh winetricks corefonts vcrun6
If the application fails to install after this step, ensure that you are using the most recent version of Wine or the last known version of Wine that didn't break this application.
If you still need help, file a bug report or something.
