Getting started with HTTP::Proxy
Posts: n/a
Hi. I don't know anything about proxies or networking yet I've been
tasked with protecting some content on a media server and I'm guessing
a proxy is the way to go. I'm playing around with HTTP:roxy just to
get a feel for things. All of the examples and discussions seem geared
to a proxy which sits on a user's computer while what I want is to put
the proxy on an intermediate server between the user and the media
server. So just to test I set up a bare bones HTTP:roxy script on
one of our web servers. It runs and I can connect to it but I don't
know where to start trying to get it to do more:

use strict;
use warnings;
use HTTP:roxy;

my $proxy = new HTTP:roxy (port => 8100, host => undef);

When I connect I get the message:
"Scheme is not supported by this proxy."

How can I do something simple like pipe the google homepage to my
browser (not redirect!)?
