Sterling's proxy does not work with new Core ...

 [1/3] from: petr::krenzelok::trz::cz at: 28-Mar-2001 13:19

Hi, does anyone use Sterling's proxy.r script which can be found on website? It does work using latest View for e.g., but timeouts (or what?) if using new Core ... what's the difference in port handling between the versions? the log of session follows:
>> do %proxy.r

Petr, Do you have the last experimental of Core to try it against? That would be much more helpful than testing against the View experimental. Thanks! -Bo On 28-Mar-2001/13:19:16+2:00, [Petr--Krenzelok--trz--cz] wrote:

I use that script all the time! It's great! Haha. A slight change was made to the URL parser such that it now returns the port it is paring the url into instead of the target of the url. This should not be a big deal for any other scripts since most do not do deep intricate port work like this to begin with and then even fewer would care about the return value of parse-url. All you need to do is comment out this line from the script and you'll be back in operation. ; port-spec/target: tgt Sterling
