[ANNOUNCE] Apache-HTTunnel 0.02
- Hi all,
A couple weeks back I mentionned I was working on a HTTP tunnel
project that uses mod_perl. Well I finally got around to document and
publish it so it's off to CPAN
at this very moment.
As usual all feedback is welcome.
Note: I just realized the README says mod_perl 1.9919 is required, but
1.999021. At least the Makefile.PL has it ok :)
===== README =====
Apache::HTTunnel is a universal HTTP tunnel that allows the transport
of any TCP/IP protocol over HTTP. It is designed to allow people
behind firewalls/proxies to access non-HTTP services.
It is loaded into the Apache web server using mod_perl. The client
module (HTTunnel::Client) or script (/usr/bin/httunnel) can then be
used to setup the actual tunnel(s). See Client/README for more information
on using the client components.
Note: Apache::HTTunnel works only on UNIX-type platforms, more specifically
those that support the sendmsg(2)/recvmsg(2) API.
- To install this module type the following:
% perl Makefile.PL
% make test
% make install
Note 1: Apache::Test is used in the test suite. If the test suite cannot
find your Apache web server, you may want to try one of the
following (see the Apache::TestMM documentation for more details):
% perl Makefile.PL -apxs /path/to/apxs
% perl Makefile.PL -httpd /path/to/httpd
- Generate the sample configuration file (see the Apache::HTTunnel documentation
for more information on the available configuration file options):
% perl -MApache::HTTunnel=sample_config >
- Restart Apache (see the HTTunnel::Client documentation for more information
on using the client components to setup a tunnel):
% service httpd restart
- To install only the client portion, see Client/README.
This module requires these other modules and libraries:
- mod_perl 1.999021
- File::FDkeeper (which in turn will require File::FDpasser)
