Bug#647505: ITP: tcp-over-dns -- TCP tunnel through the standard DNS protocol

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Wolfgang Frisch <wfpub@roembden.net>

* Package name    : tcp-over-dns
  Version         : 1.3
  Upstream Author : Tim Valenzuela

  Description     : TCP tunnel through the standard DNS protocol

tcp-over-dns contains a special dns server and a special dns client. The
client and server work in tandem to provide a TCP (and UDP!) tunnel
through the standard DNS protocol.

This is similiar to the defunct NSTX dns tunelling software. The purpose
of this software to is succeed where NSTX failed. For me at least, all
NSTX tunnels disconnect within tens of seconds in real world situations.
tcp-over-dns was written to be quite robust while at the same time
providing acceptable bandwidth speeds.
