NAME

       Net::Proxy::Connector::dual - Y-shaped Net::Proxy connector

DESCRIPTION

       "Net::Proxy::Connecter::dual" is a "Net::Proxy::Connector" that can forward the connection
       to two distinct services, based on the client connection, before any data is exchanged.

CONNECTOR OPTIONS

       This connector can only work as an "in" connector.

       The "server_first" and "client_first" options are required: they are hashrefs containing
       the options necessary to create two "out" "Net::Proxy::Connector" objects that will be
       used to connect to the requested service.

       The "Net::Proxy::Connector::dual" object decides between the two services by waiting
       during a short timeout. If the client sends some data directly, then it is connected via
       the "client_first" connector. Otherwise, at the end of the timeout, it is connected via
       the "server_first" connector.

       ·   host

           The hostname on which the connector will listen for client connections.  Default is
           "localhost".

       ·   port

           The port on which the connector will listen for client connections.

       ·   server_first

           Typically an "out" connector to a SSH server or any service that sends a banner line.

       ·   client_first

           Typically an "out" connectrot to a web server or SSL server.

       ·   timeout

           The timeout in seconds (can be decimal) to make a decision.  Default is 1 second.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

       This module is based on a script named sslh, which I wrote with Frederic Ple
       "<sslh@wattoo.org>" (who had the original insight about the fact that not all servers
       speak first on the wire).

       Frederic wrote a C program, while I wrote a Perl script (based on my experience with
       connect-tunnel).

       Now that "Net::Proxy" is available, I've ported the Perl script to use it.
