I already posted this question to the firewalls newsgroup,
so I apologize to anybody who sees it twice.
My company is working up an Internet application in which it
is proposed to use SSL. The question has arisen, How many
potential users are behind firewalls that won't let SSL
(port 443) out?
I'd appreciate hearing from firewall administrators as to their
individual policies on this issue. (My post to the firewalls
newsgroup got one permitter and one prohibiter.) Extra gratitude
and good karma to administrators who are willing to discuss the
rationale for their decision either way.
