Haven't there been a couple of reports about major CGI holes in the Netscape
server? Doesn't that make the lack of password guessing a moot point? All you
need to do is get one DLL in there and you can proxy anything you want though
to the internal net... and they've helpfully told us port 443 is available
for that purpose.
