I dont have much idea abt proxies. So please clear the scene for me.
The 2 options that you provided:
>>1) default: responses to the proxied requests are not compressed at all:
>> gzip_proxied off;
It is the safe option, right. If the user is behind a proxy dont use gzip.
Seems fair enough.
>>2) to allow to cache correctly compressed responses (modern Squids):
>> gzip_proxied on;
>> gzip_vary on;
Now will this work on every condition for all users no matter how their
proxy has been configured.
