Subject Re: [users@httpd] PORT questions]
Date Mon, 06 Jan 2003 06:21:42 GMT
Well ... I'd love to, but what I'm really building is a stateful packet
filter on 80.  And ... well, I guess that I COULD pick up nasties after
they hit the Apache server ... but I'd rather get to them before, and drop
the packet.

I know you can do this other ways (e.g. at the router), but I want a TON
of flexability, such that I can arbitrarily do things like, say, if the
client sends a /GET/index-forbidden.html request, then the packet is
dumped.

So you could still listen to with the same application to port 8000 and you wouldn't need
port 8001.

and an InputStream which will receive the reply. If you changed the TCP packages coming from
the apache server they will not reach your application. Also, to be receiver at port 8001
you need to establish a tcp connection there as well. If you could modify the resulting package
so that a Java DatagramSocket can accept it you could have some success, but I don't know
how hard that is. You might have data losses that way though.
