[DeleGate-En] Re: Issue with Delegate 7.3x - 8.5.5
02 Jul 2003 21:21:45 GMT "Lobdell, Ian" <>


We were able to fix it the following way:

using a FTOCL filter where the Content-Type= text/html
and the filter = Filter: /
where the perl script looks for: href="\-_- and replacing it with hfref=" we were able to get around the issue.

 <a href="http://localhost:8888/-_-"></a>

In your first message, it was like:

 <a href=" <http://localhost:8888/-_-> http://localhost:8888/-_-"></a>

This seems apparently broken.  Which is true?
Anyway, the rewriting is very mechanism with which DeleGate's original
proxying (with -_-) is realized.

Sorry but I'm not sure what is your problem.

If you use "http://delegate/-_-http://server" in your request to do the
proxying, any "http://server" in the response must be rewritten like so
to continue further proxying.

 1) client requests http://DeleGate/-_-http://server1
 2) DeleGate relays it to http://server1
 3) server responds with HTML including http://server2
 4) DeleGate rewrites it to http://DeleGate/-_-http://server2

 5) client reuqests http://DeleGate/-_-http://server2
 6) DeleGate relays it to http://server2

Where is the problem?
