Java Transparent TCP Proxy

Copyright (C) 1999 by Didier Frick
This software is provided under the GNU general public license.


This software implements a transparent proxy in Java. A transparent proxy is a piece of software which is able to transparently redirect TCP connections from a given port on a given machine to a different port on a possibly different machine.

This can be useful if you use Java applets and you want these applets to be able to reach a different server than the HTTP server the applets are originating from.

There are other ways to achieve the same results, however all these alternatives require some intervention on the client running the applets, which may not always be a reasonable or simple option.
