Hi Gene,

As Mark said, WebScarab is a great place to start.  We should put some white
papers on the portal for some of the esoteric details not mentioned in the

In terms of openproxy, I never seen such a tool but it looks like it was 
written by Steve Taylor and it has been incorporated in Webscarab. But you

polished and more specific in utility.
