Send data / connection when no ports are open.

The challenge is to send data to a cgi application when no ports are "open".

Is port-tunneling the best option?
PPTP?
UUEncode and send via post?

I'm a bit lost on where to start, the server folk are a bit more than
hesitant to give much information (they work for a different company).

I am writing an application for a customer who, for security reasons, keeps
all ports closed.
It involves creating large XML data sets and the ability to send supporting
documents (.txt, .doc, .pps, .xl, etc) to be stored
on the server.

They, the customers sub-contractor who is doing the networking, tell me that
I will need to tunnel through. At the time I was not sure what that meant,
to be honest.
I've read up on the TunnelMaster and TunnelSlave. I'm not certain if that
will be able to get through the
firewall on its own. Would one of the two need to be running as a
server/port-sniffer?

On PPTP: If this is used for VPN, might it also work for this concept?
[I'm not as read on that yet, just came across it
today]

I'm awaiting a response from the customer's hosting company to see if I
could submit through an HTTPS connection, even if I had to
convert the data and files to ascii and then convert back.

keeps
supporting
that
meant,

bullshit, just like sub-contractors and consultatns whic don't know where is
space on keyboard

you can't create connection if all ports are closed, they need to open
firewall (1 port to 1 other ip address),
if this is not secure second solution is frizbi-net, enought 1.44 disks
should help

<g> I have to say that, as a contractor/consultant, I have suffered from
this problem, once. The strange keyboard had two 'half-size' bars at the
bottom, one of which was space & the other enter. I had enourmous trouble
with it.


I can make a firewall like this - I pull out the network cable. Works just
fine.

Rgds,
Martin
