What the hell is PET?
PET is HTTP proxy cache (like squid
does), SSL proxy, FTP proxy (alpha version). PET supports extended ICP
services (algorithms), Cache Digests which are both compatible with squid.
There is also easy to configure Web based interface, where you can configure
nearly all (maybe all) config parameters in simple web forms. PET statistics
via web browser is our commonplace.
protocols are supported?
PET supports HTTP 1.0 without Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive feature, HTTP is
the only protocol which is cached. Secure socket layer (SSL) is proxy only,
and FTP is passive only non-cached. (will be changed in future)
Where can I
We have developed PET on RedHat linux with glibc 2.1. But it runs on libc5
linux system also. We have successful testing in Debian and Slackware
distributions. PET is configured with autoconf (./configure) before
compilling. When your system has pthread library together with db library,
you have a big chance that PET will run on your platform.
