If one had a system to port forward via, then it would be a deal done,
but it is not the case anyway. Even the CONNECT method of a proxy is
only valid for a fully HTTPS proxy, not a pure HTTP proxy. You would
have a chance with having CONNECT enabled (HTTPS proxy), but only if
the proxy is unfiltered. However, that is not the case.
In addition, I personally really dislike the visible passwords that
you need to compromise with socat...
