There is an tag. Aren't both the subjects of HTTP and proxy servers off-topic? Did this used to be on-topic and we are keeping it for historical reasons?

I would say it depends on the exact context of the question, but in most cases, yes, discussions about a proxy would be off topic. (as it's almost entirely a server or software discussion.)

How to direct traffic to your proxy would be an example of an on-topic use. (i.e. WCCP, policy routing, etc.)

  • So overall the tag is worth keeping for the cases where it is on topic? Jul 1, 2015 at 0:07
