Hi,

Is there a way to have the web redirection actually returning a code 404 instead of a code 200? It is preventing my to update all the computers connected to the repository.

This is what I get from my apache server, correctly indicating the document does not exist:

$ wget http://73.38.155.36:8999/inexistent.html
--2016-01-30 15:15:55-- http://73.38.155.36:8999/inexistent.html
Connecting to 73.38.155.36:8999... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
2016-01-30 15:15:55 ERROR 404: Not Found.

But when I use the dynu servers for the same document, this is what I get:

wget http://apt.freebird.dynu.com/inexistent.html
--2016-01-30 15:16:02-- http://apt.freebird.dynu.com/inexistent.html

Shouldn't your custom page not found return a 404 error in the header?

This is a website that explains the problem:

When cloaking is enabled, the web page will be displayed in a frame. The page should be able to return code 404 if you disable the cloaking for the web redirect.
