Description (last modified by dmorissette) (diff)
We need the ability to specify a proxy when connecting to remote WMS/WFS servers.
This could possibly be added as layer metadata wms_proxy_*, but I wonder if we should instead create global configuration parameters inside the WEB object?
I never really worked in environments with proxies, so I wonder if it is safe to assume that when someone uses a proxy, then they use it for *all* their http connections and not only to get to specific hosts? i.e. is it a good idea to have a single global proxy setting in the web object in the mapfile or should this be local at the layer level?
