You can not direct the user to the page you want if the user enable the
proxy, because the web server will think the request come from proxy
server's IP instead of users IP. Only your proxy server can tell where the
request come from, whatever you do on webserver is irelevent, I try with
Windows NT IIS4.0 and ASP script, without proxy enabled, it worked perfect,
with proxy enabled, it did not work.

So the best possible way to give the user IP address which has no access to
the proxy server, when the user's proxy is enabled, proxy server will return
a web page says your access id denied, error # xxxx, which you can configure
this page to response to error message and redirect to your signup or
payment page, it work well even customer switch to other ISP and forget to
change the proxy setting. While on the other hand the web server should
deal with those customer do not have proxy enabled.

To implement those, Emerald must record the subaccount type when the call
was made, so when you make some trigger or schedule to chnage those cutomer
to other subaccount type, Emerald could consolidate those calls properly.
