Those of you who work for companies with a closed subnet may be interested
in my patch to X Mosaic 2.0 to allow it to make connections transparently
to servers outside the closed subnet, via a simple TCP/IP gateway driven
by inetd.

The change is limited to libwww2 : HTTCP.c and the HTDoConnect() function.
If you want the patch and the gateway program, email me: dsr@hplb.hpl.hp.com

If there is sufficient interest I will try and get NCSA to take on the
code as part of their normal s/w distribution package.
