Can anyone explain how pound handles out of bound data (aka urgent request or
The particular server we're connecting to serves some java applets over odd
numbers. The applets may be configured to pass through a proxy server. The
documentation for the product states that out of bound/urgent request/urgent
pointer data be passed through the proxy unchanged.
The reason being that we'd like to use pound in our DMZ, in order that clients
connect via https, which is decrypted and forwarded to the internal backend
server. The backend server responds to the proxy, which then encrypts the
connection and sends it to the client.
Also, how does pound handle backend sections using the same ip address but
different port numbers? I have configured a separate backend for all of the
port numbers required for the applets.
If this is not feasible with pound does anyone have an alternative solution?
Otherwise we'll probably end up with *gulp* Microsoft ISA server.
