Problem: Flickr has closed its http api leaving an https only api. My favourite uploader is no longer maintained, so this change broke it.
My current solution to this is to set up a reverse proxy server to translate
https://www.flickr.com and fix my DNS so that
www.flickr.com traffic gets forwarded to this proxy server.
This works but obviously I don't want all my flickr traffic going to the proxy, just the traffic coming from the uploader. Can I do this?
Is there a simpler way to achieve this? eg, forward
http://www.flickr.com straight to
https://www.flickr.com without the proxy server.
