Amiga.org Proxy......
« on: May 10, 2018, 01:25:02 AM »
Hello Karlos..... Just curious, will the Proxy ever come back online? :confused:

http://aoproxy.extropia.co.uk/

I really appreciate the effort you put into it and I miss using it with IBrowse.

Thanks.............

Funny, I was just about to make a thread asking for the same thing.

It would be cool with some "legacy compatible" gateway proxy to all the Amiga forums... and while dreaming, why not NNTP gateway while at it :)

There were some issues following a hosting migration. The extropia domain has always been kindly hosted by a good friend and they currently have much more important things to worry about. My copy of the source is on my dead HD. I can probably get a copy from the server and dump it in github so that it can be hosted by anyone.

To be honest, the best place to host it would be on a sub domain of this site. That was the intention originally.

Excellent suggestion Karlos and thanks for your help!

What is needed for the proxy?  I'm not opposed to throwing up a VM in my cluster. It could easily have something like "proxy.amiga.org" or "classic.amiga.org" or whatever pointed at it.

That would be great! It wouldn't matter as long as it's not a secure site (https). Here is a link to the original discussion that Karlos started in 2010. Maybe sift thru that link to get an idea of how it was originally setup. Maybe you could get in touch with Karlos too.... :)

The source code would be an excellent start. Other than that just php5, though it is probably high time it was modernised.

Surely the author of the code deserves your donation more? ;)

The proxy was a labour of love and was not written for any reason other than to give a better experience for the minority of users actually using their classic systems to come here. Still it seems fitting that only in Amiga circles does the issue of lost source warrant someone throwing money at someone to do something. We should have a bounty too lol

Why have one when you can now have three in a pack? ;)

I'm posting this right now from Netsurf m68k from Aminet.

Why is the proxy needed again?

Does NetSurf work with ECS and AGA?  I have not messed with it in so long I forgot.
