Just a hint:

If the proxy server and firewall are on a network segment that is
shared with large numbers of internal machines, the internal network
traffic can swamp them. We put a router (with no filtering!?!) between
our internal network segment and the firewall/proxy segment. This
multiplied our performance by about 20 (ftp rates went from 4 K/s to
90 K/s).

1. Accessing files on winXP machine via http server

I have 2 machines both having XP WITHOUT the builit-in firewall setting
I'm running an http server on 1 of the machine on which I want to run a perl
script that accesses the files on the other machine.

The script worked fine when I was having WinME but no longer works on WinXP.
Running the script locally(executing it via command prompt) does the job,
but when I call the script by accessing the local web server, it does not

How can I make this to work?
Thanks in advance.
