1 mod_roaming 2.0.0
4 With mod_roaming you can use your Apache webserver as a Netscape
5 Roaming Access server. This allows you to store your Netscape
6 Communicator 4.5 preferences, bookmarks, address books, cookies etc.
7 on the server so that you can use (and update) the same settings from
8 any Netscape Communicator 4.5 that can access the server.
10 This version has been ported to Apache 2.0 and also works on Windows,
11 Netware and OS/2. Binaries for those platforms are available.
13 If you want to use mod_roaming with an older version of Apache, use
14 mod_roaming 1.0.2.

28 files, does not allow users to read or write each others roaming
29 access files, and is generally very strict about the requests it
30 allows. Only that which is needed by Netscape Communicator 4.5 is
32 * mod_roaming can be installed as a DSO (Dynamic Shared Object)
