Interesting referrer string in server statistics
Do you know what this is about?

Can someone explain this attention attracting referrer in my log? A visitor from Venezuela initially requested the page in the normal way and after a moment repeated the request with the below referrer. The server then responded with a 304, just as it should do.

I presume it is some kind of language translation service ("en&trg=es"), but never seen this kind before. Why his use of port 1025? Client was MSIE 6.0. Some extension?

http:// localhost:1025/?src=en&trg=es&op=<t:Option Name%3d"HandleInputEMailPrefixes">1</t:Option><t:Option Name%3d"TransDialog">0</t:Option><t:Option Name%3d"InputTextDomainType">Technical</t:Option><t:Option Name%3d"TranslationSpeed">Balanced</t:Option><t:Option Name%3d"Politeness">Polite</t:Option><t:Option Name%3d"ImperativePlurality">Singular</t:Option><t:Option Name%3d"ShowGLOMs">1</t:Option><t:Option Name%3d"DetectSourceLanguage">0</t:Option>&ModifyWebPageLinks=0&tkt=&url=http:// www.mydomain.com/mypage.html

Please forgive me if posting certain URLS is forbidden when they directly relate to the post content but this is my first post.

I've looked around and the only thing I could see was:


Its the manual to a program that seems to translate pages, sort of on-the-fly, and runs off that port. It might need to run a server and therefore use whatever port is available from a firewall, or just randomly selected that one perhaps?

EDIT: Actually, thats Filemaker Pro related (just read the file I originally refererenced and it made no use of any translation service but had lots of translation service junk inside the file (because it changes server GET/POST requests so its translating but not in the way I thought it meant). I'll take another look, my bad sorry!

I know. This dud is running a website on his local machine, and he just added a url to your site on his (local) website. Localhost means the website is on the same machine, and port 1025 indicates that this is the port he used on the machine to access his website. He could have more than one website running each using a different port.
