Hi,

Is it possible to forward connection from web browser to Broadway display server via SSH ?

Thanks,
Igor

Unfortunately, no there is no way to do this. *If* copy + paste were
implemented between a broadway app and the browser, then you could at
least push a link to a file to download into the browser, and the user
could copy it and paste it into a new tab. Anyway, copy + paste is not
implemented yet ( Hi devs ... if this is easy, it would be pretty
damned handy ).

I haven't had to do anything like this yet, but if I had to tomorrow,
I'd get users to enter an email address in a config screen, and I'd
email documents or links to downloads to them. Not ideal, I know.
