I am trying to block all favicon requests and send back a 404.
I use haproxy in front of 2 node js servers that acts as a web service.
There is no need for node to handle these requests so I wanted to block and respond to them with haproxy.
Below is the acl for the incoming request(not sure if this is correct either):

acl test_favicon hdr(url) -i favicon.ico

Well, does your ACL work or not? –  mgorven Jul 26 '12 at 5:30
acl is the logic, right? Don't you have to apply it with a block statement or some kind of response? –  user129728 Jul 26 '12 at 18:40
