>From what I can see, your problem might not be with varnish. As far as i know, varnish would return a 503 error on backend failure, you would never get redirected to, as you say it is happening to you.

Please try to use the command "varnishlog" to see exactly what is happening to the request. Also, posting which version of varnish (2.x or 3) you are using might also help.

hey, here is my vcl file:

I commented out "sub vcl_fetch" because I got error while starting varnish.

backend default {
.host = "";
.port = "81";
sub vcl_recv {
# add a unique header containing the client IP address
set req.http.X-Orig-Forwarded-For = client.ip;

# we're only handling static content for now so remove any
# Cookie that was sent in the request as that makes caching
# impossible.
if (req.url ~ "\.(jpe?g|png|gif|ico|js|css|zip|CSS|mp3|wma|wmv|avi)(\?.*|)$") {
unset req.http.cookie;

#sub vcl_fetch {
# if the backend server adds a cookie to all responses,
# remove it from static content so that it can be cached.
# if (req.url ~ "\.(jpe?g|png|gif|ico|js|css|zip|CSS|mp3|wma|wmv|avi)(\?.*|)$") {
# unset obj.http.set-cookie;
# }


Hey guys,

I am fairly new to the Varnish, I installed Varnish as the frontend to nginx, everything works fine föruton a strange problem that I have never encountered before when I used only the nginx;

I have an index page that links to the archives of this dress in two different ways:
Link 1:<>
Link 2:<>

Here comes the problem, with Varnish does not link two work, the browser simply can not access the page and after a few seconds, nothing appears in the browser and the address bar shows the address that a page can not be reached, the address that appears in the address bar is:

Configuration of the Web server is and Varnish 80.

I don't use htaccess.

I would be grateful if you help me with this problem.
