help with blackhole test results

Hi All,

i’ve just contrived a test, using a simple script to send all 3rd party requests (potential SPOF candidates) to a server i set up that simply returns a 204.

The test result is here:

interestingly, instead of seeing the 204s i was expecting, i’m seeing lots of 404s.

Any ideas?



Check your access logs but if I had to guess I would say that your server wasn’t expecting requests for content for the various domains (you probably need to set up a default vhost that has a rewrite rule that rewrites everything to a script that returns the 204).


gotcha. Apache is firing the default vhost rule, and sending the default 404 ErrorDocument.

Cheers Pat.
