When exactly do I need to use a proxy with openlayers? I've done a lot of reading on this but can't seem to find a difinitive answer. Wondering if this is the route of my problems.
For instance, if I have one server running Geoserver (WFS) on port 8080 and Apache (serving OpenLayers) on port 80 would I need to use a proxy?
If the servers are phyically seperate would I need to use proxy?
Many thanks, Steve
