      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
