thought, it would be nice for a firewall if the proxy:
- only has a connection to server OR client
- does checks for mallicious java(-script)
if i cought that right all traffic between browser and
web-server hast to pass the proxy - so it should be possible
to examine the transmitted java-code.
what helps the best firewall if someone could get acces
to local filesystems via java...afik nearly all versions of
netscape and MSIE are affected by java-problems.

thx
