Nice article, Rene. I also saw apache_mod_proxy can do the reverse-proxy function. How is the performance comparing to squid proxy? any benchmarking on this proxy performance between these two?

thanks again, Clement

as to excuses I use for "THAT" OS, I usualy just say "what do you expect? It's Mickey$hit Windblows. And that is why I use Linux.".

I have actualy exclusivly used linux since '95. Before that I used OS/2 Warp cause the "other" OS used broken cooperative multitasking, and that was just a mess for my Fido-net BBS.

Any particular reason for not just using a tool, which already exists - such as Unison (http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/) which is cross platform/OS ?

Heh. That was back in my "youth".

Yes -- this is correct. puts only outputs stuff on the screen. This is when you have Ada.text_io; in use as a package.

I am not sure what you're asking me here -- surely it's obvious what the above is doing? Given that "Count" is likely an integer value, and hence you'd have been using something like the following:

Then put in this context takes on a different meaning. What you're asking:

Put(Count,5); New_Line;
To do is output count with a width of five digits.

The explanation as above also fits in with this.

Oh dear, it seems I have submitted this work in late. I wonder what your teacher would have awarded me?

Dunno whether you append old pages or not, but since this is the most linked by google, maybe you do. :)


Additionally to the original answer the error message (and the fill of th ARP table) may be caused by an accidentally too broad local net route, like on eth0, which would generate plenty of ARP for any 193... addresses, which in fact fills the ARP cache (neighbour table). This usually happens if you mistype the network mask... (like writing /4 instead of /24, or instead of
