Net::Proxy, making the network accessible - BooK
Thursday, The Onion Room, 900, 40 mins

Net::Proxy provides accessibility for those who find that there are too many firewalls and hurdles on the way of their network packets.

It can be used to bypass firewalls, setup several TCP services on the same port (magic!), add TLS support to servers which do not support it, etc.

I will go into details about the generic Net::Proxy architecture and the concept of connectors, how to use it, and how to create new connectors. The peak being running two distinct TCP services on the same port, transparently.
