HTTP tunnelling is a term used to describe the use of a custom communication protocol embedded within an HTTP connection.

Using this, HTTP allows communication between remote machines handling encryption, server redirection, firewall connection, proxies etc. You may then embed your own custom communcation within this.

For example - if you create a servlet and an applet, you may communicate between them using stream io.

Very useful indeed.
