    nquneH,

    Yep, seen it. It loks like socks on steroids over http. We are lucky no one
    actually uses it.

    (Yes, i don't like socks. It provides no protocol knowledge and may lead
    into punching gaping holes in the firewall when used without proper
    restrictions. You may even bind external ports with it!)
