Hey there, I want to connect to a server through a proxy server and different ports. Is this possible? If it is, what is the easiest way to do so? Thanks in advance.

You mean FreeRDP or FreeRDP-WebConnect?

The former uses a plain TCP/IP protocol, which as such can be proxied for example via e.g. a SSH tunnel.

The latter uses HTTP and HTTPS, with a persistent websocket connection employed for the RDP traffic.

Persistent websockets need some care in order to be proxied. In the Squid case for example, read_timeout and client_lifetime settings need to be set accordingly.

We have plans to publish some guidelines on this topic soon.

Thanks for your reply. Since I've never used any of your tools, I'll just explain the situation a bit more detailed (sorry if I repeat myself): We want a encrypted connection (from a Windows Device etc.) to a remote server, but we have to go through a proxy server and we can't use a SSH tunnel. Port forwarding, SSL certificates and the like is already established, we just need a tool to connect (after your explanation apparently FreeRDP-WebConnect), but I'm not sure how to set it up.
