[DeleGate-En] Re: transparent proxy from one delegate server to another delegate server

    --> intranet-delegate 
      --> backbone-delegate
        --> actual destination site

 |original request from intranet-node:
 |request from intranet-delegate to backbone-delegate:

 |backbone-delegate, i'd love to hear them!

I have no idea with what parameters you could make such rewriting,
I am curious about it...
Anyway, in principle, a typical configuration for cascaded DeleGates
(for HTTP client) is like this:

  (HTTP clients on intranet specifies "internal:8080" as its proxy server)
  internal% delegated -P8080 MASTER=firewall:8080
  firewall% delegated -P8080 RELIABLE=internal
