udp2tcp-0.0.1 released

Some days ago the DNS server of my dormitory stopped working, so I (we, me and all my colleagues) lost most of the network functionality. As the DNS port is blocked by the dormitory firewall, I could not rely on external servers to resolve names, so… ? Fortunately, I had already established an SSH tunnel towards the outside world, so I wondered if I could use it to solve my problem. If only I could re-route the local DNS requests over the TCP tunnel…

Well, I was not able to force my system to resolve names over TCP, so I needed a “UDP to TCP, and back” translation mechanism. Briefly, udp2tcp was born! 😉

I registered the project udp2tcp on Sourceforge (link to the project) and its first version (0.0.1) can be downloaded here:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/udp2tcp/udp2tcp-0.0.1.tar.gz

This project is still at an early stage, but any suggestion is welcome!
