Hello guys,

First, i would like to thank Juli for the good work on the WAN Proxy
project, it will solve a lot of problems not yet solved except by Commercial

So here is the current situation i am currently working on, we have 2
locations with various types of servers on both and we would like to use WAN
Proxy as a WAN Optimization software to reduce the amount of data flowing
between the 2 locations to save costs and here comes the questions:

   1. How should  the network be setup now ? should i install the 2 servers
   with wan proxy with 2 interfaces on each server, one facing the local
   network on the location and one facing the public network (Internet), where
   those WAN Proxy servers will be the gateway to both of the networks ? and if
   so, then which one should be the WAN Proxy server and which should be the
   client ?
   2. If the above infrastructure is correct then what template should i
   follow to send all the traffic between the 2 locations, something like this
   or the "Proxying over a WAN using SOCKS".<>

BTW, I am very interested in the project and i would like to do any
contribution i can, may be with some usage documentation or Linux Packaging

Thanks in Advance.
