Subject [users@httpd] suspicious proxy(?) URLs in logs
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2011 13:16:01 GMT

while going occasionally through the access logs of a 2.2.17 Apache server, I noticed some
URLs of remote locations where my server would have made a GET for ?!

an example: - - [10/Mar/2011:02:26:55 +0100] "GET HTTP/1.1" 200 240
"-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 4.01; Windows 95)"

So the status code = 200 indicates that the server allowed that URL ""[1]
 for the client ...

I suspected that proxy functionality (enabled by default for long, but luckily in this 2.2.17
version it is not enabled by default in the configs), so I checked the loaded modules :

# /usr/apache2/bin/apachectl -t -D DUMP_MODULES | grep -i prox

so none.

Which other module or config setting could have as effect that my server accepts such requests
