How to Tell if you are using a Reverse Proxy

To determine whether your virtual host / subdomain is hosted on the WWW servers or on the proxy servers (legacy), run the following comman on the command line:

host myvanityurl.stanford.edu
from a Terminal window.
If it returns:
proxy-service.best.stanford.edu
then it's on the proxy servers.
If it returns:
www-v6.stanford.edu
then it's on the www servers.
