Subject Referrer header and proxy servers?
Date Mon, 22 Sep 1997 21:28:00 GMT
I'm running into a problem which I cannot find described in the HTTP
spec (It may be there, but I can't find it).

Should proxy servers pass the HTTP "Referer" header un-touched? What
about on a 302 Redirect?

In other words, if a browser contacts a proxy server with the Referer
header set to http://www.foo.com/ and my server redirects the request to
http://www.bar.com/ should the Referer header of the request to
www.bar.com contain "http://www.foo.com/"?

I believe that it should, but can't find a reference in the
specification to support this. The apache proxy module does not appear
to alter the Referer header (which, from my perspective, is good).
