I just tried searching something (and no, it wasn't porn, it's on the screenshot), and was presented with the following:



Seeing that is not my IP address, but belongs to TelstraClear, I can only think it's their "transparent proxy" not being so transparent?

going to ipchicken.com get the same thing seeing someone else's IP address. I have never dug into it too much to see if ipchicken it saying to cache it for that long or if TC is caching things for longer than it should.

In firefox I use the HTTPS Everywhere addon so where possible I run HTTPS avoiding TC proxy.

Also doing a lookup 203.98.50.23 is bc6.telstraclear.net which looks like their network kit which is different to my ipchicken which is other cable or adsl user's IP addresses, can tell by the reverse dns that is displayed on the page.

Regarding the search terms: Redgate SQL Monitor is really nice.

The bc6 in the domain name will most likely be a Bluecoat network appliance which I think TC use for caching to save international bandwidth costs.

So yes - this is a Telstra network device, and most likely the cause (or near the cause) of your issues.

Use can use google.com via https which would bypass the proxy but not google.co.nz yet.

Not a single word from TelstraClear here. What a shame.

Ragnor: Regarding the search terms: Redgate SQL Monitor is really nice.


Yes, I already use SQL Sentry and have Redgate SQL Monitor installed. The first is really good for the detail, but requires a client (or Publishing Services). The second is great for access from any browser. I was looking for tips and tricks...

I also noticed problems with a PR web site (http://media.prnewswire.com) for the last few weeks - in summary the TelstraClear transparent proxy seems to be introducing problems in a few websites requiring cookies.

Yesterday, the cache farm was augmented with some new caches. For a few hours these new caches were fetching content from their own address rather than the clients (ie. they were not fully transparent).

I suspect in your case this meant that google saw many many requests from the same ip address and it triggered what you saw in your screenshot.

It was fixed shortly before midday.

Hi. Datacentre caches have been upgraded over the last few weeks. Some customers may have noticed a few minor issues yesterday morning while a portion of this work was underway. The upgrade is now complete and our network is operating to specification.

Cheers, Gary
