If your Server has to work with all kinds of Proxies and mobile internet providers, it is a good idea to turn the "FixupRequest.RemovePrefix" property on the TRtcHttpServer component to TRUE.

Some Web Proxies (often used by mobile internet providers) like to add the protocol and host name before the URI (especially when you are using a Port other than 80), probably thinking they are taking to another Proxy. By turning the "FixupRequest.RemovePrefix" property to TRUE, the RtcHttpServer component will transparently be removing this "prefix" from the URI, leaving you with a clean URI to work with.

Without setting the "FixupRequest.RemovePrefix" property to TRUE, if you aren't expecting the URL inside the "Request.FileName" property and accepting such requests, your Server will be unusable from Clients behind such Web Proxies. This includes a number of mobile devices (like iPhone or iPad) with mobile internet access.
