I want to connect ssh with http proxy. It is because I can't directly connect to my server.
but I can connect to the http proxy. I see that -o command argument with ProxyCommand might be able to do this.
Can you give me an example to use -o? for example, the http proxy is port 80.

ssh -v -o {the configuration I want. maybe contains myhost:80} -p 443 myname@myserver

You'll need to download corkscrew on your local client

$ ssh -o ProxyCommand='corkscrew proxyserver proxyport sshserver sshport’ user@sshserver
