Subject Re: SSL over proxy: coming soon?
Date Fri, 06 Apr 2001 13:33:59 GMT
I've been looking for specs on how to do this. It looks straightforward. Is
my understanding of the matter correct in that you should simply do a 
CONNECT request as per RFC2817, section 5.2/5.3, and as of then treat the
connection as a newly opened SSL connection?

bfn, Wouter
