What is "x-luminati-ip: superproxy bypass"

Whenever targeting a domain that is not allowed or not in use with the right product, the Bright data "Network policy" monitoring system will either block the request or route it from the super proxy server.

When routing from the super proxy server, traffic will be charged at the same rate as the zone used to make the request is charged.

To better understand if the request passed or not, simply check the request in curl mode:
- Go to BrightData API and examples page

- Choose "shell" as the example, and the correct network type you will use (api_exam.png)
- Copy the Curl command and run it with -v at your terminal
- Check the response header for x-Luminati-IP:

The below code snippet shows a curl request to the website which was bypassed by super proxy and not sent by the peer IP
