>That's a terrible package name.

I agrea this can be confusing, but I was the original name

BTW, there is a duplicate ITP :

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=306268

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=294943

She suggested to rename it "ssh-proxy-connect" ,
this sounds good to me, if noone is against that name I will repackage it
(check in a few days : http://rzr.online.fr/docs/contribs/debian/?M=A ) .

I am waiting sonia answers to my emails, to merge our work if needed.

Take care

I would suggest not using "ssh" in the package name. The software can be
used for many other things than just providing a clean TCP tunnel for
ssh. In fact it can be used by almost any application which needs a
clean TCP tunnel.

Another note: It might be worth mentioning that its HTTP-Proxy tunnel
won't work with content-inspection firewalls which will drop any
connection established by a CONNECT which do not use SSL. Many companies
use such firewalls.

There have been two independant ITPs for connect, closing mine
since Philippe Coval has made a package.
