The concept of Transconnect originated during a chat session
with a friend. We knew that HTTP proxies support CONNECT
feature to allow for https connections to remote hosts. There are
programs which allow you to tunnel through a proxy, but we
thought it would be wonderful if the user did not have to
setup a tunnel for each host:port he wants to connect to.
After a bit of digging around, stumbling on wierd ideas
I finally came to know about
function interposing. It allows you to intercept the
library calls and do whatever before calling the actual function.
I developed on the idea and transconnect is the result of that.
The code has been released under GPL. If you have any bugreports
or feature requests (or criticism), my address is there at the end.
