Thanks for the kind words. I'd be interested in seeing this script, as it seems an interesting tool to have. Simon Cozens told me that he had a similar tool (called wherewas) based on HTTP::Proxy, which basically gave him a search engine for anything he browsed, thus allowing him to easily find the URL to a page that he vaguely remembered.

Thanks for the log. I see your problematic traffic goes through a CONNECT method. CONNECT support in HTTP::Proxy is not very good, to say the least. In my understanding, you're connecting to Gmail using https, so the simplest way to avoid going through your HTTP::Proxy for https traffic (since HTTP::Proxy is not able to peek into it anyway, you probably do not care). So simply disable the proxy on https traffic in your browser, and you should be able to use https sites correctly. For a few years now, I've been thinking of a rewrite of HTTP::Proxy that would focus on the content (HTTP messages) and not on the protocols (HTTP, TCP and SSL, which are better handled by the appropriate programs). With Plack, this seems very possible, but I'm lacking time, so don't hold you breath. :-S -- Philippe Bruhat (BooK) The worst curses in the world are boils, pestilence and having partners (not necessarily in that order).

Hi Philippe, Thanks for your answer. The script is still a first try, and it is very raw. But if you send me your address I will email you with more details. I will apply the workarround you told me. Nevertheless, I find it very useful. Cheers -- Diego Show quoted text

You'll be interested to know that I have applied the changes proposed in this ticket https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=90414 which should improve how HTTP::Proxy handles https. Let me know if that works for you. -- BooK
