These are various small programs.


Autoforward is a script that automatically sets up PuTTY to connect to the OUCS Linux service. It sets up port forwarding to allow Web and email access, and configures Internet Explorer to use the forwarded connection. Autoforward will also detect SOCKS and HTTPS proxies that are currently set up in Internet Explorer, and offer to use them to connect.

To use it, download Autoforward and PuTTY, save them in the same directory, and then run autoforward.js to connect.
