Hey Ivan,

Can you give more details on what you want to achieve  eventually?
Are you trying to achieve a specific goal from one of the options WanProxy
Depends on the relevant protocol you will use wanproxy for like http you
might have another more suitable solution ready to use.
There are couple other ways\proxies that offers TCP connections optimization
but it's very important to be very specific on your goals since a "catch
all" solution is not going to help you to resolve a specific issue.

Let me know if I might be able to try and help you.

* if you have tried other ideas then WanProxy let me know which

Subject: Freezed download via Wanproxy


I am making some tests with Wanproxy to understand how much it is
stable and reliable. I am using latest Wanproxy code from Github and
work on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with kernel 4.13 and all latest updates.

I have conducted following simple test:

I have installed locally Apache 2 HTTP Server and put some large file
into the document root. Then I have configured, also locally, "client"
and "server" Wanproxy similar to how it is described in examples
section on, but without ssh tunnel between them, to proxy
Apaches's HTTP port. Then I have used wget to download that large file
through "client" Wanproxy. It worked fine but slower than direct
download from Apache. Then I have tried to do the same thing but  I
have shut down "server" Wanproxy somewhere in the middle of download.
The download has freezed, the were no further progress. When I have
restarted "server" Wanproxy, the download did not resume. When I shut
down client Wanproxy, wget showed error like "connection refused" and

I would expect that when "server" Wanproxy went down, "client" one
would disconnect clients connected to it to indicate that upstream
link is broken, if not immediately, then after some reasonable
timeout. Is there a way to achieve something like this with Wanproxy?
If not, what changes to Wanproxy are needed to enable such
