NAME

HTTP::Proxy::HeaderFilter::standard - An internal filter to respect RFC2616

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

This is an internal filter used by HTTP::Proxy to enforce behaviour compliant with RFC 2616.

METHOD

This filter implements a single method that is called automatically:
filter() Enforce RFC 2616-compliant behaviour, by adding the Via: and X-Forwarded-For: headers (except when the proxy was instructed not to add them), decrementing the Max-Forwards: header and removing the hop-by-hop and LWP::UserAgent headers.

Note that the filter will automatically remove the Accept-Encoding headers if the proxy has at least one HTTP::Proxy::BodyFilter filter. (This is to ensure that the filters will receive uncompressed data.)

SEE ALSO

HTTP::Proxy, HTTP::Proxy::HeaderFilter, RFC 2616.

AUTHOR

Philippe BooK Bruhat, <book@cpan.org>.

Thanks to Gisle Aas, for directions regarding the handling of the hop-by-hop headers.
