How to IdentifyWhen trying to access page www.deals.com the page cannot be displayed. The browser will show an Error 500
The problem seems to be related to some header validations made on the server.
The GFI Proxy sets the X-FORWARDED-FOR and Via HTTP headers on requests, these might cause the issues on the server.
You can deactivate these header modifications if you edit ProxyConfig.xml file and set SetProxyHTTPHeaders node to false.
Browse to ...\GFI\Webmonitor\Data
Make a backup of ProxyConfig.xml and save it in another folder
Open the file and search for: SetProxyHTTPHeaders
set it to false.
Restart the GFI Proxy service
ATTENTION! If you disable the X-FORWARDED-FOR header, WebMonitor will not know the source IP address of the original client. This means that accessing the WebMonitor configuration interface remotely (ex via 188.8.131.52) will not be working anymore!! The configuration interface will only be accessed directly on the server using http://127.0.0.1:1007
