What is HttpTunneling (Servlets)

Question :What is HttpTunneling? (Servlets)
Answer :HTTP tunneling is used to encapsulate other protocols within the HTTP or
HTTPS protocols. Normally the intra-network of an organization is blocked
by a firewall and the network is exposed to the outer world only through a
specific web server port , that listens for only HTTP requests. To use any
other protocol, that by passes the firewall, the protocol is embedded in
HTTP and send as HttpRequest.
