I thought about transparent proxy, but since I have control over the
browser configs at the client's location, it is better to specify the use
of a proxy. Transparent proxy unfortunatly has a few shortcomings :-( I
hope someday maybe transparent proxy could be made to work just as well as
a normal proxy so that I can use it with our dialups. Dialup customers
seem to fear proxy configs, even though all they need to do is point at
our autoconfig page (that instructs them -- with pictures -- how to point
their browser at the URL for our proxy.pac).
