[REBOL] Re: Rugby RIM?

From: ryanc:iesco-dms at: 18-Sep-2001 14:03

Hey Graham, Both RIM and Rugby can use port 80, or any port for that manner. Firewall issues are just unavoidable with P2P. These can pose a problem when: 1. Initiating a connection to a machine behind a firewall. 2. Establishing a connection to an outside machine on a disallowed port when behind a firewall. So either way really. Situation #2 can generally be broken by having your server reside on port 80. If its a proxy, you will need to use an http request in order to pass thru. The RIM "server" code is called lookup.r in the reboltech library. --Ryan Graham Chiu wrote:
