Thanks for the tip on Squid 3. I've found two other standalone ssl proxies (http://crypto.stanford.edu/ssl-mitm/
) but neither seems to work all that well for what I want to do.
In fact I'd really like to avoid setting up the device to connect through a proxy. Because I'm already on the "wire" between the device and the internet it seems like it should be possible to proxy the connection without additional device configuration. Could Squid be configured to do this?
Now the topology is: handheld <--> laptop wi-fi <==> laptop ethernet <--> LAN & Internet
It seems like: handheld <--> laptop wi-fi <=SSL endpoint(Squid 3?)=> laptop ethernet <--> LAN & Internet shouldn't be too hard.
The cert situation is going to cause problems but it is what it is.
