HTTP over HTTP tunneling

var tunnelingAgent = tunnel.httpOverHttp({
  maxSockets: poolSize, // Defaults to 5

  proxy: { // Proxy settings
    host: proxyHost, // Defaults to 'localhost'
    port: proxyPort, // Defaults to 80
    localAddress: localAddress, // Local interface if necessary

    // Basic authorization for proxy server if necessary
    proxyAuth: 'user:password',

    // Header fields for proxy server if necessary
    headers: {
      'User-Agent': 'Node'
    }
  }
