Do you think I can do that wihtout being root on the http server ?

This might be a solution. Actually, my linux boxes are all behind a
firewall and I all their ports are disabled except port 22 (for ssh).
But I shall ask our network administrator to see if I can install
an http server to be used from inside the local network only.
If it is possible, then this is the solution.

Thank you for your help. Cristian Barbarosie
