Well, but the server doesn't necessarily understand that
unexdlc.ucdavis.edu is a separate host: You've just told it (via the
Host header) that /it/ is unexdlc... so it probably thinks its
redirecting you to a different path on the same directory.

...huh. That's funny: I don't get the redirect message when /I/
connect... I get a 200 OK with an html body.

Notice that unexgal9.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu (which is 152.79.198.9)
apparently doesn't realize that 152.79.198.9 is its own IP address, and
keeps trying to forward it on...?
