    Can anyone explain to me what it means you get a "proxy" username in the access_log like this:

    Code:
    x.x.x.x proxy mail@domain.com [DATE] "etc"
    Instead of a regular username like this:

    Code:
    x.x.x.x - <username> [DATE] "etc" "-" "-"
    ?

    Hello :)

    It typically indicates the IP address making the connection is a proxy. You can search for "proxy server" to get a better idea of how a proxy works if you are not familiar with it.

    Thank you.
