[thelist] ajax question, server vs. client request

   If you're invoking it in client-side script, then the client is making the request.

   You still might want to check with them, since it sounds like they're trying to limit bandwidth from off-site requests...

I'm thinking of doing an ajax site, which will query
craiglist rss feeds. I've read a little bit about
xmlhttprequest function, used by ajax sites, my
question is, will the request to the craiglist server
be coming from my server ip, or the browser/client ip

I know cl has placed a filter on their firewall that
will block repeated requests from the same ip - ie
10,000 requests from a server ip.

Anybody know?
