Great. I took a look at the Maxima interface, but it was a bit
overwelming as a place start for me as a novice Sage developer
(although I must admit I learnt somethings about using Pexpect
that I am already planning to duplicate on Axiom Wiki :). If you
can give me even a basic shell that calls Axiom with some command
and returns a result to Sage, plus some hints as to how to install
and test it in my Sage installation, then I would be glad to try
to help.

You will need to add something like the following to your Apache
configuration file:

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_module modules/
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/
  ErrorLog     /home/page/sage-logs/error_log
  CustomLog    /home/page/sage-logs/access_log common
  ProxyPass    /
  ProxyPassReverse /

  ErrorLog     /home/page/sage-logs/error_log
  CustomLog    /home/page/sage-logs/access_log common
  ProxyPass    /
  ProxyPassReverse /

These are the actual configuration options used on the
axiom-developer server. Of course you must change the ip
address and directories as appropriate for your system.

If you get stuck or if this is very unclear, let me know and
I can give you more explicit instructions.

Here is the axiom-developer proxy address for your wiki:

Here also is an axiom-developer proxy for the prototype
NotebookWiki at

Both of these work fine through my firewall.
