Additional Comments

WARNING: The Server Proxy feature allows an application behind the proxy to accept connections from Internet hosts. If the DATA portion of a packet has been maliciously modified, the application using the server proxy feature may be vulnerable to attack by a client sending invalid commands or bad data to the application.
