add proxy feature to dowload via remote URL
the download feature in "diffusion" has three modes :
- "upload" (the file is uploaded by the supplier on the server)
- "URL" (the file remain distant on a remote URL... most of the time, a server of the supplier)
- "zoning" (the file is uploading via a MAP which offers n URL via a WFS, each URL corresponds to another file for another area).
Problem : with both URL and Zoning, the remote URL is visible. It is OK when the data has a public access scope. But if access scope is "private", the URLs remains accessibles for any one who knows the URL.
Proposition : add a proxy feature to hide remote URLs and secure them (ask for login/password)

This proposition can be relatively quickly added to the mode "URL" by adding a PHP proxy with URL rewriting.
This is more tricky with the third mode "zoning" and need some more thoughts.
I suggest to add for no the proxy feature for the mode "URL".
@Bruno, could you change the name of the ticket (I cannot) with "add proxy feature to dowload via remote URL" please ?

Such functionality must complete current easySDI download proxy...
Process can see under download_proxy.png
Managed endpoint protocols are: http, https, ftp, sftp
When selecting URL storage, optional login information of the endpoint can be captured and a test button allows user to test connection to the resource
