How To Create URL Mapping For The Reverse Proxy Using um_ntrans In The Predefined SAFs ?

Goal

Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server: 4.0.19

To create the Reverse Proxy by enabling Http-Compression, the following options were tried:

1. Removing Accept-Encoding between the Web Proxy Server and the remote server (back-end server) so that incoming response can be rewritten.


2. One cannot use "map" and "reverse-map" SAFs and suppress-request-headers for Accept-encoding. Because if you configure it, the content won't be compressed.
It seem the expected behavior.

Due to BUG#12308510. um_trans should be used to create the Reverse Proxy by enabling Http-compression.

There could also be a scenario to use "um_ntrans" / "um-define-junction" / "um-output". But this doesn't seem to work as expected.
