Reverse-connect HTTP server

4 posts in this topic

so heres the problem, I have a program whose management is done through a web interface. I want this interface to attempt to actively connect to an external address at a set time every day.

So what Im looking for is a go-between program. something to connect out to the predefined address and patch the connection through to the local web interface. Ive tried this in a number of (increasingly ugly ways) with netcat but its not happening. ideas?

What do you mean by "patch the connection through"? You can't just throw HTTP traffic at a web interface and expect anything meaningful to happen.

So like some socket programming along with a cron job. Unless you can find somebody who has pre-designed something like this. Depending on the reason you're connect should determine which port/service to use.

Im busy writing a program to do this (with help from chown). it has 2 modules, one which sits on the network and connects back (through the firewall or whatever) and a local module, which waits for the connection from the first module, and maintains this connection so that it can be used as a tunnel into the remote network. its kindof hard to explain. Ill post the finished program here
