Transparent proxy services are provided reliably. A TCP/IP input stream is received that includes data and control packets directed to a destination address that is different from a network address of the proxy. Incoming TCP data packets and control packets are intercepted. Intercepted data packets are processed asynchronously with respect to reception of other TCP data packets. At the start of the processing, an indicator is set to represent an active state of the processing; at the conclusion of the processing an output of the processing is sent to a determined destination for the first TCP data packet, and the indicator is set to represent a non-active state of the processing. In response to the state of the indicator representing the active state of the processing, control packets are delayed by the proxy.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
