      I have noticed that if I see some kind of proxy activity on my
      server, it registers EVERY SINGLE IP ADDRESS as a unique site. For
      example, my stats showed 10 sites and 11 visits before the following

      There were many, many more from this user, and the user was the only
      one to access the site during the time. After this single user
      accessed the site, I ran webalizer again and it showed 56 sites and
      15 visits!!

      Any way to fix/filter this?

      TIA,
      John

            You can do that now on a per IP basis by manually putting the
            proper GroupSite and HideSite direcives in your config file..
            On a global basis would be more difficult and cause valid IPs
            within the same subnet to incorrectly be grouped as well.
            This is just something that you have to live with and one of
            the reasons the documentation states that the visits count is
            not to be considered completely accurate. Welcome to the wonderful
            world of the http protocol and the various ways people can be
            connected to the network.

            How do you give Microsoft the benefit of the doubt when you
            know that if you were to throw it in a room with truth, you'd
