Seems to work.  ;-)

The essential setup is that you run TUX on port 80 (called the "server" port),
and your httpd goes on port 8080 (called the "client" port.. can be whatever
you want).  If TUX doesn't understand how to handle a request, it will 
hand the connection over to the httpd and let the httpd deal with it.  The
httpd doesn't have to be Apache, and other than forwarding connections I don't 
think there's much interaction betwixt TUX and the httpd.   Also, TUX doesn't
have to be the "server", either.

Take it easy,
