As an application level proxy, DeleGate provides virtual view for resources
in other servers, by aliasing, merging, and hiding real names
(like URL which identifies a resource or a service) in real servers.
It is like a generalized mechanism of NFS file mount,
but unlikely it is realized by rewriting content of data.
In other words, this is a mapping (rewriting)
of virtual names in client
to/from real names in server,
where names are embedded in a protocol dependent data structure
on request/response messages between a client and a server.
With this function named mounting,
for example, a resource
http://hostiN/ is shown to client as if it is http://hostx/iN/.
MOUNT can be used to
built-in icons and messages of DeleGate too.
