Abstract: Embodiments are described for a system and method for testing a plurality of web resources, such as web sites and/or web servers in a distributed client-server computer network. Embodiments include a method of configuring a proxy server to forward incoming HTTP requests back to a fixed port on the IP address of the sender of the incoming HTTP request to effectively remove the requirement of domain name resolution from the test environment. A reflective proxy server reflects requests from a source IP address back to that same IP address on a specific port on the testing computer to permit the testing of arbitrary web site domain names without performing DNS resolution at any step in the process, thus removing the need to modify the testing computer's host's file.
