Subject Odd Host Header Problem
Date Tue, 22 Jul 2003 06:02:27 GMT
Here's an odd heads up for you.  I've come across an IIS server which 
doesn't like:

 >GET /eljconfig.xml HTTP/1.1
 >User-Agent: test
// Note the server interrupts at this point without waiting for the 
rest of the request
<Content-HTTP/1.1 500 Server Error
<Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.0
<Date: Tue, 22 Jul 2003 05:50:21 GMT
<Content-Type: text/html
<Content-Length: 102

But likes:

 >GET /eljconfig.xml HTTP/1.1
 >User-Agent: test

<200 OK

It appears that unless the Host header is the first header provided, 
the server returns a 500 response.  No idea why or how they get IIS to 
do that, but I'll be creating a patch to add the Host header first for 
our use so if people would like it for HttpClient I can send it through.

And in case I haven't mentioned it before - I hate non-compliant
