[REBOL] Re: AleME proxy problems

From: ale870::gmail::com at: 22-Jun-2006 9:53

No Petr, proxy is not a proxy... Ok... I'll be more clear... A server is waiting for client coming from a specific port (e.g.: HTTP servers usually expect the clients (brwser web) on port 80; FTP server on port 21; etc...); Client browser send the request to the server to a specific port. CLient browser "allocates" a client port that is different from server port. Look at this: FireFox browser -------> server apache (port 3300) (port 80) It means, if I want to use Firefox to reach server apache I must walk within port 80. My proxy should let me use such port: FireFox browser -------> PROXY ------------> server apache (port 3300) (enabled: 80 (port 80) (disabled:5400 Only the requests direct to server port 80 can continue their travel, the other ones cannot. Proxy setup used in Altme is used since a proxy can create a map from incoming and outgoing connections: IN:8080 ---> OUT:80 (typical configuration) On 6/22/06, Petr Krenzelok <> wrote:
