305 answer is not mandatory, so you can't rely on it. > I don't know what info and how/where to read/interpret it (and cannot test > it here). > Especially Squid proxy users seem to use the most exotic ports that are used > for other protocols. Any port can be used for http proxy. Common ones are 80,81,3128,8000,8080 but there is no rule. In my experience, I've never seen a 305 reply in common production environments (Squid, ISA Server). Consider this: if you get a 305 from the proxy, you talked to the proxy so you know ip and port :D 305 is mostly for proxy-redirect (from proxy to another), but everyone use proxy scripting. -- Marcello Vezzelli CTO Software Development Department E-Works s.r.l. tel. +39 059 2929081 fax +39 059 2925035 Direzionale 70 - Via Giardini 456/c 41100 Modena - Italy -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
