If you're referring to www/httptunnel, then yes it does. I've personally
used it to push ssh sessions via an authenticated http firewall. It's a
little flakey when the http proxy does something it doesn't like (like
closing the connection - it generally just crashes the hts process), but
it does work. Works fine on cygwin too if you only have a windows
machine at one end. Checkout the -P option.
