    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.
    9 
   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.
   12 
   13    If you want to use mod_roaming with an older version of Apache, use
   14    mod_roaming 1.0.2.

   16 Features
   17 
   18      * mod_roaming allows your existing Apache webserver to double as a
   19        Roaming Access server.
   20      * mod_roaming implements the GET, HEAD, PUT, DELETE and MOVE methods
   21        that make Roaming Access work.
   22      * Specifically mod_roaming implements the non-standard MOVE method
   23        so that you do not have to set the li.prefs.http.useSimplePut
   24        preference to true.
   25      * mod_roaming automatically creates directories for new users to
   26        keep administration simple.
   27      * mod_roaming does not allow anonymous access to the roaming access
   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
   31        allowed.
   32      * mod_roaming can be installed as a DSO (Dynamic Shared Object)
   33        module.

   37      * A technical article about Roaming Access on the Netscape website.
   38 <URL:http://help.netscape.com/products/client/communicator/manual_roaming2.html>
   39      * Jochen Wiedmann has written a mod_perl module based on the code of
   40        mod_roaming, that allows you to generate configuration files on
   41        the fly. Apache::Roaming is available from any CPAN mirror.
   42        <URL:http://www.perl.com/CPAN/modules/by-module/Apache/>
   43      * Frederik Vermeulen's Perl script that allows you to use Apache as
   44        a Roaming Access Server. This script was my inspiration to write
   45        mod_roaming.
