thank you very much for your reply. Today I tried delegate 9.9.4-pre9
and I made some extraordinary experiences trying to accomplish my task
which leads me to the assumption that I made a mistake somewhere else.

First I tried to Filter for X-Request with delegated 9.9.4-pre9 but had
the same results as before. Than I tried to filter for "Content-type:
text/xml" but the filter never matched. After that I tried separately
two matchingNames which should never match "X-Request-Content-Type:
text/test" and "X-Request-Host: abc" but the filters always matched.

The http requests where always identical and the headers sent to the
client always look like these:
 1  Status-Line: HTTP/1.0 200 OK^M
 2  DeleGate-Ver: 9.9.4-pre9 (delay=0)^M
 3  X-Request-Original: POST /xmlrpc/data HTTP/1.0^M
 4  X-Request: POST /xmlrpc/data HTTP/1.0^M
 5  X-Request-Host:^M
 6  X-Request-User-Agent: (by^M
 7  X-Request-Content-Type: text/xml^M
 8  X-Request-Content-Length: 98^M
 9  Server: BaseHTTP/0.3 Python/2.5.4^M
10  Date: Wed, 01 Jul 2009 12:36:52 GMT^M
11  Content-type: text/xml^M

Because I'm a bit clueless I picked the relevant config and attached it


ToClientExtern.cfi (all matchingNames tested separately):
Content-type: text/xml
X-Request-Content-Type: text/test
X-Request-Host: abc
X-Request: POST /xmlrpc/data HTTP/1.0
X-Request-Original: POST /xmlrpc/data HTTP/1.0

Header-Filter: -tee-n-v /dev/tty

My experience is that it does not make any difference if I use a ssl
connection between delegated and the client or not - the results are the
