You're correct, apache 1.3.20 with mod_proxy. I've encountered several
web sites that have not successfully navigated the 1.1 -> 1.0 transition
(I get a "document contains no data" error). Most notably
www.hardocp.com and www.anandtech.com fail outright.
I am considering squid, but I'm not looking forward to getting the LDAP
authenticatoin working again.
Thanks for the input.
