The only problem I noticed was the executing of a program after the
connection has been established.
What I did:

Ncat: Listening on 0.0.0.0:443

The commands written on the external system appear in the terminal but
the "cmd.exe" has not been executed by ncat before so they just
interchange the characters.
I first thought - well - perhaps this feature is not meant to be used on
a client which connects over a proxy server. Without the proxy server
between the systems this works like a charm.
I thought that the CONNECT request has to be initialized by the internal
system and therefore there cannot be a command transmitter outside that
sends the commands inwards.
Although the characters appear inside while writing on the outside
Am I right, or is this a bug?
You are correct, this is a bug. I added a test for it and made a TODO to
It's fixed in r21755.
