MSProxy and banning?

I’ve read a little about MSProxy/2.0, but don’t really follow what is happening. What good does it do to repeatedly request the same page? That seems like the opposite of what a proxy or cache should do.

You’d think so, wouldn’t you?

My guess is that the ‘MS’ in MSProxy stands for “Must Saturate”, in context with its relationship with the network it is placed on.

The fires in Redmond must have burnt extra late to put that feature in. Innovation indeed. ;>

(And no, I have absolutely nothing of actual value to add, other than it could be some sort of mis-configuration issue - do all MSProxy accesses look like that, or just the ones from that IP?)
