I an tell you that AK MDR is Auckland Mayoral Drive, L2 would be Level 2 (probably of the building as opposed to the cache level) and BC is probably Blue Coat, who making caching proxy servers.

I could be wrong but I didn't think Telecom named external facing servers in this way?

As to why you got it, no idea!

Did you do this from a business that uses any Telecom services such as One Office?

Honestly I don't know, I don't work for Telecom anymore,  I just remember some naming conventions, which are not hard to work out anyway, no trade secrets revealed or anything!

I would suspect it would be because of a "via" header being set by the transparent proxy.

If you're using Firefox you can install Firebug and it will show the via header.

I'm getting a similar message when checking whatismyip on TelstraClear:

Your IP Address Is: 203.x.x.x
Possible Proxy Detected: 1.1 bc4

Telecom has had HTTP caches for quite some time.  However not all traffic was routed through them.

They are being progressively rolled out now.

Correct. That's why I posted the link to the other discussion. I couldn't expand because had limited time, but more and more people will be behind a proxy cache sometime soon - not only on Telecom.

does that mean more shaping http traffic? :/
Can we have a Net Neutrality movement now?

I would also suspect it was a mis-configuration on the proxy server, since I was sure all http traffic was being transparently proxied, and having the via header injected was optional.  So I think you could safely assume all http traffic is being proxied.

1/ Well my browser requests for www.cryptome.org and www.inkedin.com via TNZ DSL to Xtra resolves the DNS, but the page never loads.

Switch to iPhone via XT, no problems. Go to work, different ISP, no problems.

2/ Apple Store via TNZ DSL to Xtra and apps not downloading, store not always reachable, apps purchased don't always download.

Switch to iPhone via XT, no problems

Hi All,

This is related to the work freitasm pointed out.
We include the via header so that when we have issues we can track what cache is serving that request. So its not a mis-configuration.

Transparent proxy is not intended to hide the fact you are passing through a proxy from our point of view it is so that we are not masking you client IP with that of the proxy you pass through.
In fact even with no via header if you know what to look for you can still tell you are being proxied through transparent proxy caches.

cbrpilot is correct, not all DSL ranges go through the farm at this point, it is a progressive roll out so we have the best chance of making it as smooth an implementation as possible.

Not all HTTP traffic is proxied through the farm, only traffic that Telecom see's as International traffic, and that means any traffic that is sent out, or comes back in through our international links.

I hope this answers the questions you have raised.

Regards

Paul

Hi Digitaldivide,

These sites may need to be bypassed through the cache farm.
I will have the two URLs you mentioned above bypassed, can you please post or PM me the URL you are using for the app store just so i am not making any assumptions?

Regards

Paul
