Question: Why was RFC3093 published? (Think(*) for a bit here...) About a month later, there was a *major* flame-fest on the IETF list due to this message: http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/ietf/Current/msg11918.html Yes, the basic reason for this proposal was because many firewalls will pass HTTP but not BEEP. What major P2P applications have included a "run over port 80" option to let themselves through firewalls? It's not just handwaving. (*) Remember - satire isn't funny if it isn't about something recognizable...
