Re: Digex transparent proxying
It might also be time for content providers of time-sensitive data on the web to redirect requests coming from Digex' proxy harvest machines to a web page that says something along the lines of "Digex has intercepted your web request and directed it through their web caching system. This impacts the time-sensitive data at this site. Hence you cannot access this site in this manner. Please contact Digex at [insert contact info here] and politely ask Digex to stop intercepting your web requests. When Digex removes this interception mechanism and permits you to connect directly to this site again without any interference or interception, you will again have full access. Please understand we cannot offer full access without a direct, unintercepted connection. Otherwise we cannot maintain the quality and timeliness of the data this web site provides due to interference by a third party." And so forth. Just an idea really. Or does this hijacking mechanism NOT use harvesting techniques that can be detected by the source IP address? Blah. Tis late, I must be babbling incoherently. Aaron out.
