Web sites that use PHP

I am not a security type person, so if this is a stupid question please forgive me. If a web site uses PHP do I need to add a fixup protocol http:xxxx to get it to work? Every time my customer goes to certain sites, it fails if they reconfigure their web browser to not use the fwsm and use a proxy server they have no problem.

I frequently access web sites that run PHP from behind a Pix that has no special fixup. Has always worked with 6.2 and 6.3, doubt it is the Pix

I thought that might be the case but I had to ask. I think they might have an external DNS issue, but I wanted to post this question before I spent time on the DNS. Thanks


Re: Web sites that use PHP

PHP is a server-side scripting language. When the PHP script is executed (on the web server) it generates standard HTML that is sent to the clinet machine. To the client, there is not difference between hard-coded HTML and the HTML that PHP generates and substitutes fot the in-line HTML.

It may be that the proxy is serving from local cache, maybe the issue is an ad blocker (Ad Aware, etc). Some sites will not put up content until it gets an acknowledgement that the ad has posted.
