Subject RE: apache 2.0 patch to force proxy to speak HTTP/1.0
Date Mon, 14 May 2001 15:13:30 GMT
the people at BEA weren't the most up to date with 
HTTP (they thought using telnet to run a HTTP command
was some kind of security attack )

it only happened when you sent connection:close in the first 
request. which mozilla/ie would never do.

(CR045112 on their systems, supposed to be fixed in SP#10)
