WebSocketSocket implements a custom over top of a WebSocket, and also a server component that accepts a WebSocket connection and connects to a host/port. This allows you to tunnel arbitrary TCP over a WebSocket, even TLS can be used over it. Which potentially allows you to securely establish a trusted TLS connection even on a network that intercepts TLS on port 443.

Sample Usage

Configure and run SocketWebSocketServer on a remote server.

Socket sock = new WebSocketSocket("ws://remote-server:remote-port/websocket/ssh");
// use sock just like any other standard Socket

You can also run SocketProxy on the client which listens on a local TCP port, and connect to that with anything.
