       htc - httptunnel client


       htc [options] host[:port]


       This manual page briefly documents the htc command.

       htc  sets  up  a httptunnel connection to PORT at HOST (default port is
       8888).  When a connection is made, I/O is redirected  from  the  source
       specified by the --device or --forward-port switch to the tunnel.


       The  program  follows  the  usual  GNU  command  line syntax, with long
       options starting with two dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary  of  options  are
