    Hi everyone,

    I need to investigate something related to /var/log/cpanel/logs/access_log. All is good except something I don't understand: I can see a lot of lines that right after the IP it says 'proxy'. Like this:

    Code:
    111.111.111.111 proxy domain%40domain.tld [04/29/2016:09:45:34 -0000] "POST /cpsess2171299479/3rdparty/roundcube/?_task=mail&_action=refresh HTTP/1.1" 200 0 "http://webmail.domain.ro/cpsess2171299479/3rdparty/roundcube/?_task=mail&_mbox=INBOX" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0" "s" "X-Forwarded-For: 111.111.111.111" 80
    What does that 'proxy' mean?

    Thanks!

    So when the user goes to cpanel.domain.tld or webmail.domain.tld it will be logged as proxy in access_log.

    Ok...thank you!
