What exactly is a "layer 3 proxy for server publications" supposed to
http proxy should be able to:
termination https connections (use http to internal servers)
Because of the necessary address translations. The connection to that
web server is secure (separate switch, switch and cables not reachable
for anyone but IT).
Why would you want to break https?
eg. internal link file://server/share -> erxternal ftp://server/dir
I know, this could be done by script, but i have little influence on our
handle (s)ftp (maybe a separate component)
Why would you want to break ssh?
the original ftp server no capabilities ssl at all. i hope to add that
on the gateway.
