Baroque Connectivity

Posted on Jun 12, 2002

Having baroque connectivity some of the time is a real strain.

At workaccess to the outside world is via one of two mechanisms:

  • a web cache,

  • a SOCKS proxy.


A pertinent example of this is the difficulties in trying to get Radio upstreaming to work in this environment. Using the Radio Userland servers (accessed using SOAP over HTTP it would appear) works well. Any attempt to publish using ftp to machines at homeseems doomed.

The fact that there are (at least) two other network configurations to consider ("DSL at home" and "DSL at home with Cisco VPN") suggests that I'll be sticking with with Radio Userland servers for a while :-(
