[squid-users] Fwd: http get requests to squid with relative path

Hi everyone,

I've just discovered that making requests to our reverse proxy using a
Vodafone umts connection does not work.
I get a bad request, and the problem is that in the http header the GET
line does not include the full path but just the relative one. The "Host:"
parameter in the header is ok and it contains the host address.
If I make the request using different internet mobile providers I have no
problems, so it seems it's something with Vodafone that strips the url!

In the RFC 2616 (chapter 5.1.2) they say:
"The absoluteURI form is REQUIRED when the request is being made to a
proxy. "

So, is there a way with Squid 3.4 (or newer versions) to solve or
workaround this problem?

Thank you.


As we grow older we grow both more foolish and wiser at the same time.
