Subject: backbone transparent proxy / connection hijacking

>Has anyone else noticed Digex playing with transparent proxying on their
>backbone?  We have one of our T1's through them, and found that all web
>traffic going out our Digex connection goes through a proxy.  We've got
>customers with web sites that are broken now because they can't
>communicate with things like Cybercash, because their outgoing http
>requests are hijacked and sent through a Digex web cache. 
>Digex wants us to register each web server out on the rest of the
>internet that hosts from our network need to talk directly to.  This looks
>like the beginning of a big PITA.
>I wouldn't have a problem with Digex setting up some web caches and
>encouraging customers to setup their own caches and have them talk to the
>Digex ones via ICP...but caching everything without our knowledge/consent
