Avoiding proxy use for Orbitz & CheapTickets websites

Orbitz-based domains do NOT proxy well or at all. Workaround...

Firewall / iptable rules (if using a transparent Squid proxy)

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -d 198.151.61.0/24 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -s 198.151.61.0/24 -p tcp -m tcp --sport 80 -j ACCEPT

squid.conf rules

acl orbitz dst 198.151.61.0/24
cache deny orbitz
always_direct allow orbitz

Browser proxy setting: add 198.151.61.0/24 to the no-proxy list.
