[Twisted-web] Fwd: Web-Based Proxy

Thanks for your help Jean-Paul.

In my example I've just subclassed the protocol and factory so I could print
out the properties and have a little control over things as I learn.  The
proxy could of course be much easily run as

   from twisted.web import http
   f = http.HTTPFactory()
   f.protocol = Proxy

I should be a bit more specific about what I'm currently confused about.

*I'm trying to find where I can grab the request URI from the client so I
can modify it from www.asdf.com.MYPROXYSITE.com to www.asdf.com before the
proxy client makes its requests.  Where can you access and modify those
