Varnish & Turpentine when you have plenty of spare time
After many and many hours decide to remove Varnish and Turpentine. Problems with shopping cart, ajax, geoip etc are not solvable if you aren't a super expert with loads of free and paid time.
So leave it for the experts with to much free time.
The removal of Varnish is easy, but after remove of turpentine hours and hours wasted time again to get things running again.

When will this support Magento CE 1.9..
Great extension for Varnish but after testing it only works up to CE 1.7. I realise that magento has some significant changes in the later versions and hence this will not work with it correctly. Do you have any plans to implement support for CE 1.9? or do you have any fix we can apply as I am desperate to get it working!

It works perfect in 184.108.40.206 (multistore and multidomain)
It works perfect in 220.127.116.11 (multistore and multidomain), after modifying the vcl to avoid the mistake of dirty cookie "double cookie frontend"
If you solve the problem of double cookie, without needing to have to call our technicians, would be to give it a 5, for now I leave in 4 *

Huge speed improvement but
After finally getting it working, I noticed a massive speed increase on the website.
But we are using 18.104.22.168 and found it has a problem with the cart.
If you are using 1.8.0 or 1.8.1 don't use this yet until it has been updated. Or customers often wont be able to add items to the cart.

Great speed improvement
I got great speed improvement on my server using Varnish, it was a bit hard to set-up at the beginning but then I made it work.
In the configuration backend port needs to be 8080 for Apache and Varnish needs to listen at port 80 in front. This is a sample configuration that works for me.
Great piece of software for Magento !

Varnish can be a real pain, particularly with ecom sites, but with a little nous this module works really really well, and we've seen massive page speed increases - particular on HA multi server environments. That said, if doesn't negate the need for some prior knowledge of varnish and your web server of choice.
Big thanks to Nexcess for making it freely available!

Turpentine - Varnish Cache - mature product.
Today this is the only cache you can use to lower your server load to 0%. Easy install, easy to configure and maintain. No errors whatsoever. You need some magento layout knowledge to configure it with highly customized theme, but it works in 95% out of the box.

Works great but...
I'm not seeing any headers in the pages - does the extension remove them.
Also the cart in the header is not updated when something is added - how do I fix this?
