Subject RE: [users@httpd] referencing without using explicit filenames... .
Date Wed, 09 Apr 2003 20:08:21 GMT
Here are the two entries:

>From the LAN: - george [09/Apr/2003:15:51:24 -0400] "GET
&SEL.x=143&SEL.y=212 HTTP/1.1" 200 2499
e.cgi" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)" - george [09/Apr/2003:15:51:24 -0400] "GET /aardvarkhmmm.jpg
1" 200 77610
"Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)"

>From the WAN: (internet) - george [09/Apr/2003:15:59:08 -0400] "GET
enu1&SEL.x=156&SEL.y=101 HTTP/1.0" 200 2499
uthenticate.cgi" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; AOL 8.0; Windows 98)" - george [09/Apr/2003:15:59:10 -0400] "GET /aardvarkhmmm.jpg
/1.0" 200 14107 "" "Mozilla/4.0
MSIE 6.0; AOL 8.0; Windows 98)" isn't actually what is in my logs, I just don't want to
disclose the correct URL.

Here they both return a code 200 for the image, but WAN only sent 14107
as the LAN sent the correct 77610 bytes. The WAN did not show the image
as the LAN did show the image.

I just don't get it.

I don't think one being an AOL browser using HTTP/1.0 vs the other being
IE using HTTP/1.1 has anything to do with it...but you never know.

I don't think it has anything to do withe extraneous info from the referrer.

actually, no images ever work from the WAN side, all images work on the LAN
however, all html/cgi pages work correctly on both sides.
