 script to relay a web request to another server
There must be something like this out there!
Basically, say you're behind a firewall which is blocking access to
hotmail (for instance). Is there a script or server utility that you
can install on the firewall (or other accessible machine with full
internet access) that will take your web request for hotmail and get
the hotmail page and return it to you...?

So it would take all your URL requests and make them to the external
site itself, then redirect all the response pages back in to you?

Any ideas...

If you control the firewall, you could just unblock hotmail.

You can use SSH port forwarding also if you have a remote SSH server.  You
can then connect to the other machine via SSH and it will forward requests
through that machine.  For instance, SSH into remote box, open browser and
you have a rule that forwards requests from 9999 to a remote address.


http://localhost:9999      redirect to

So all requests get routed through the remote machine.  Assuing that port 22
is open on your firewall for SSH access. option...

Well, you can't do anything from your machine.  The second gateway has
to recognize your machine as part of its LAN, and it will do NAT
