xiehuaxiehua Member ✭✭
in the case, my client is behind a www proxy server (80)
and I can do nothing with the proxy server machine.
and My server is in the public network.
the only service port in the proxy server is 80

with Ice ,Glacier, can I make use of that proxy server to help me
to let my client and server work well??
if can,still support callback?

and,if can,what's the main point of programming?

    If your firewall only permits outgoing connections on port 80, then you can't use Glacier (at least not together with the Glacier starter, which you need to support multiple clients with callbacks).

    Each Glacier router is started with a dynamic port, and your client must be able to connect to this port. This is the default configuration for common of-the-shelf firewalls, like from linksys or dlink. I.e., usually firewalls allow outgoing connections to all ports, but they block all incoming connections.
