    Hey guys.

    When I was trying to use a proxy which is checked by Charon, such window popped up:

    "You have chosen to open which is a application/x-httpd-php from: http://www.google.com, what should firefox do with this file....."

    Would somebody please tell me what this is about? What can I do with it?

    Thanks

    Sounds strange indeed...
    I'm thinking it probably has more to do with the program you're trying to run the proxy with rather than the proxy itself. Mind sharing what you were doing when you got that message? That could shed some light on the issue.

    Doing nothing except opening the homepage of google using Firefox and IE, simply just surf, same message popped up. Actually it doesn't matter what website you are trying to browse, the proxy just does NOT work. Don't know why.

    Honestly, I've never known quite why that happens. I just assume there's a default homepage or something configured for that IP and they fucked up the install.

    If I remember correctly, you usually get that message when you try to access a php page but the apache server hasn't been properly configured.
