"Stop it. Trying to hide in a proxy makes me cranky.." ?
« on: September 01, 2006, 06:34:16 am »
Hi,

I always get the above error message, when I try to access this forum at work.
What's the problem? Indeed I'm using a proxy:
Out company network hides behind a natted pfsense firewall cluster (carp)
with transparent redirection to an outside proxy (squid on an OpenBSD box).

Anything wrong with this setup?

Cheers,
   Jan

It's probably supplying a blank X-Forwarded-For header.  It needs to either supply none or supply an address.

Hopefully this problem is now solved.  We upgraded to 1.1 SMF.
