Hi Guys,

We are using a 3rd party internet proxy server at a site for workstations to have controlled internet access.

Over the December period there were extremely high internet usage and traffic through- put on the internet proxy server.

Upon investigation we found thousands of the following URL requests in the log files.
In an attempt to stop the persistant lookup we asked the users to use Firefox instead of IE (not sure if this will stop the occurance)

http://www.google.co.za/webhp HTTP/1.1

Does anyone perhaps know what this URL on Google refers to, and why it would popup thousands of times in the logs?
