Yes, but "upload.cgi shouldn't be using ip-based authentication" wasn't
*much* of a response ;-P

I'm just trying to get some traction on the problem, considering that it
turns out that adding an exception to the transparent proxy isn't as
easy as it first seemed so I'm still sitting here with a half imported
ipython module and no way of finishing the import short of manually
performing the steps from and Makefile.common minus the
upload.cgi steps and I'm 100% certain no one wants me doing that ;-P

I'm still pestering the proxy admin to add the exception for, but am also trying to address the problem from
the other side.

In all fairness, I did just finish the ipython import with the awful,
awful kludge of:

# iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -d -j REDIRECT --to-ports 8081
$ ssh  -L 8081: shahms at

Which works, but is a long way from ideal and some distance from
