Hi Dave,

I think Vinko already answered your questions about the proxy.

With respect to the following question:

It's normal for the htdocs directory to be empty. The way FGS (and also 
MS4W) works is that each package that you install adds a file to the 
fgs/www/conf.d directory that will create an Apache alias that points to 
the application's htdocs sub-directory. So in your case you should have 
a gmap.conf file in your fgs/www/conf.d.

I don't understand why you get a "Page can not be displayed" when you 
try to access http://www.mysite.net:8000/gmap-demo/ ... perhaps you 
could check the fgs/www/logs/error_log and see if you get anything that 
helps explain the error. Also make sure that you indeed have a 
fgs/www/conf.d/gmap.conf (or gmap-demo.conf) and that you have restarted 
your FGS to make sure this .conf file has been loaded by Apache.
