Re: HELP: Running X/Mosaic from behind a firewall

Hoi folks!

I got a note from TimBL some time ago on the same issue.
The CERN httpd supports gatewaying ...

We have a a httpd running on a firewall machine.
To use it as a gateway do something like:



export WWW_http_GATEWAY WWW_gopher_GATEWAY

xmosaic $*

However I had some (known) problems with binary data not beeing
gated correctly.

I am currently working on a modification to the NCSA httpd, which
should enable this server to work as a gateway for http and gopher
requests, too.
