Unfortunately, I am not a programmer, so I would appreciate to hear from
anyone who has done this "trivial" task and written the NSAPI redirection
module. The Netscape server does offer some advantages over the Apache
server for our company (even if some of these advantages are more of
promotional than of real nature) so switching seems out of the question
now, be it unfortunately.
