NAME ^

Net::Proxy::Connector::dual - Y-shaped Net::Proxy connector

DESCRIPTION ^

Net::Proxy::Connecter::dual is a Net::Proxy::Connector that can forward the connection to two distinct services, based on the client connection, before any data is exchanged.

CONNECTOR OPTIONS ^

This connector can only work as an in connector.

The server_first and client_first options are required: they are hashrefs containing the options necessary to create two out Net::Proxy::Connector objects that will be used to connect to the requested service.

The Net::Proxy::Connector::dual object decides between the two services by waiting during a short timeout. If the client sends some data directly, then it is connected via the client_first connector. Otherwise, at the end of the timeout, it is connected via the server_first connector.

AUTHOR ^

Philippe 'BooK' Bruhat, <book@cpan.org>.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS ^

This module is based on a script named sslh, which I wrote with Frédéric Plé <sslh@wattoo.org> (who had the original insight about the fact that not all servers speak first on the wire).

Frédéric wrote a C program, while I wrote a Perl script (based on my experience with connect-tunnel).

Now that Net::Proxy is available, I've ported the Perl script to use it.
