My server ip got greylisted. Is this from the proxy scraper?
My host told me to fix the issue. The warning they forwarded was the following:
Is this from the proxy scraper?
If it is, is this because in the metric scanner I have "use real ip as well" selected?
Thats all I can see here.
Why this should be a problem is however very questionable.
If that server doesn't want to to be used (and yes in this case by a wrong mean) just don't put it online.
It's just silly to scream for action on this! It's like walking out and arguing that the air is a bit cold today! If so, just don't walk out!
Anyway, if they don't have the details to this, then sorry, they just show "45.#.#.195" as IP.
1. open a tcp/ip connection to that IP:80
2. sending "CONNECT <other ip>:80"
The second a test if that server supports this feature.
There is nothing to worry about. IF that server does not want this, simplya reply with a 500 and it's OK.
