Net::Proxy::Connector::dual - Y-shaped Net::Proxy connector

This connector can only work as an

The Net::Proxy::Connector::dual object decides between the two services by waiting during a short timeout. If the client sends some data directly, then it is connected via the

Philippe 'BooK' Bruhat,
This module is based on a script named sslh, which I wrote with Frédéric Plé
