    Default unable to post msg on board as getting HTTP referr

    Since last few days I&#039;m unable to post message on the board from my work computer,I&#039;m getting error message listed below. As suggested in message do I call our dsl provider? Does firewall stop sending http referrer?<BR><BR>I&#039;ll greatly appreicate pointer to article related to this topic.<BR><BR>In order to post on ASPMessageboard.com your Internet connection must be setup such that your browser sends the referring page via the HTTP Referer header. Unfortunately your browser did not send along this information. This is likely due to the setup of your Internet provider. To remedy this problem <BR>you will likely need to contact your Internet provider and ask them to not strip the HTTP headers when making HTTP requests to Web sites on the Internet. Note that some browsers, such as Opera, allow you to specify if HTTP headers are sent or not. You may wish to make sure that this is set to true. <BR><BR>Thanks in advance

    &#062; Does firewall stop sending http referrer?<BR><BR>depends on the firewall. NAT gateways and proxies occasionally strip it out, as do some firewalls with HTTP filtering abilities.<BR><BR>j<BR>http://rtfm.atrax.co.uk/

    then maybe it&#039;s not the firewall (do I really need to say this?)<BR><BR>could be a proxy, or an upstream machine soemwhere between your location and the server. ask your ISP.
