HTTPS proxy tunnel

Hi Everyone,

I need to use libcurl to access a non-secure (HTTP) server behind a secure
(HTTPS) proxy.

I have non-secure servers at home which I like to access via a secure tunnel
(without VPN).
(These servers cannot handle secure connections)

The current implementation of the libcurl proxy creates an HTTP (non-secure)
tunnel on the proxy,
and then a secure connection between the source and the target within this

I need to use the exact opposite, a secure connection to the proxy (secure
tunnel), and a
non-secure connection to the target.

I wonder if someone had implemented this before, and if not does anyone have
interesting to share before I implement it.

Best Regards,
