Subject [jira] Commented: (TS-291) Enable transparent forward proxying
Date Fri, 09 Apr 2010 16:40:50 GMT


George Paul commented on TS-291:

For Issue 1, see section '14.23 Host' in the  HTTP/1.1 RFC specification  (
for handling of "Host" field header. 

For Issue 2 you can safely assume that 'transparency_enabled' variable was used for indicating
'transparent forward proxy' mode AFAIR.

>            Reporter: Alan M. Carroll
>            Priority: Minor
> Currently ATS provides only explicit forward proxying. It should support this transparently
as well.
> Transparent means
> * No configuration on clients.
> * Origin server sees the client IP address as the source address of the cache fill request.
> This should be an option set via configuration variables because transparent proxying
is not always the correct mode of operation. In addition, it requires a Linux kernel with
TPROXY support and so will not run in all environments.
