[Mono-list] Remoting CORBA support
Sun, 16 Mar 2003 14:37:35 -0500
I do plan to incorporate server-side support once I get some of the more
basic issues resolved. I am reluctant to add server-side support until =
take steps to make Remoting.Corba more robust in the face of buggy or
malicious CORBA clients.
Regarding the connection-reuse issue: can you be more specific about how
Gnome "authenticates bits based on the connection"? Does this mechanism =
standard CORBA mechanisms, or is it something proprietary to Gnome?
