#19185 - A log file is created with proxy user permission, preventing a subsequent user from writing in it.

#34615 - Forward proxy is creating rules for UDP from SCP GUI connection, which it is not supposed to do.

#24270 - Transfers cannot be made to a server with a docroot on Azure if routed through an Aspera Proxy server.

#24012 - Rules created in reverse proxy for host_domain are not respected.

#21288 - On some Linux platforms (for example, SUSE) the iptables-restore command is not located in /sbin but /usr/sbin. Workaround: Create a symlink in /sbin for /usr/sbin/iptables-restore.

#19205 - Proxy does not support HTTP fallback.

#19185 - If you specify a directory for <log_dir>, the log file is created with 0640 permissions. As a result, not all transfers will be logged. Workaround: Once the log file has been created, change its permissions to 0660.
