Re: proxy gateway service announcement/testing

Hi, I'm running httpd_2.15beta on a firewall, and am trying to take advantage
of the proxy option. It's listening on port 911.

I've set up a shell script as follows:


export http_proxy wais_proxy gopher_proxy

exec /usr/local/X11R5/bin/Mosaic-hp700

I see that another httpd is forked on the firewall when I run this shell
script, but the client eventually times out. The log file only shows the
access attempt, that is, no errors are reported.

This functionality is very important for us, and several of our clients also
need this service.

Can you help?
