Proxy server for the EPP protocol
EPP is the Extensible Provisioning Protocol. EPP defined in RFC 3730 is an application layer client-server protocol for the provisioning and management of objects stored in a shared central repository. Specified in XML, the protocol defines generic object management operations and an extensible framework that maps protocol operations to objects. As of writing, its only well-developed application is the provisioning of Internet domain names, hosts, and related contact details.
RFC 3734 defines a TCP based transport model for EPP, and this module implements a proxy server for this model. You can use it to construct a daemon that maintains a single connection to the EPP server that can be used by many local clients, thereby reducing the overhead for each transaction.
NetEPPProxy is based on the NetServer framework and NetEPPClient, which it uses to communicate with the server.
