Subject [users@httpd] Apache::Gateway emulation?
Date Wed, 02 Oct 2002 20:24:06 GMT
Is there any way to emulate Apache::Gateway using only Apache-2.0
modules and combining them in a clever fashion?

In a nutshell, the desired behaviour is this:
1. the gateway sits at the border of a network, users from outside can
see only the gateway
2. users "see" the gateway in a browser, via HTTPS; encryption is
3. users need to authenticate to the gateway in order to use it
4. the gateway accepts addresses like
https://the.gateway.address/?url=http://some.server.inside/some/file.html and does "the right
thing": displays the requested URL as if the URI were its own
5. should be able to map http, https and ftp servers from inside

Seems like an authenticated encrypted reverse proxy, but with some more
stuff added.
