Although I think this is not a topic for this discussion group, following
might be interesting to know ...
We used cern-httpd-proxy for 4 months without any problem ... until now.
Suddenly the proxy has problems in resolving adresses he doesn't have to
forward to our firewall (i.e. no_proxy for internal WWW).
I don't have any clue what suddenly went wrong. All TCP/IP related stuff
on our server seems to be unchanged. All other services (telnet, ftp, ...)
on this server still work properly and don't have any problems in resolving
whatever adress. I spent already too much time on this one ...
So, I am going to stop using cern-httpd and start migrating to a commercial
product (not only because I didn't get any responses from w3.org regarding
this problem :-(
