Subject More ErrorDocument problems
Date Thu, 20 Apr 1995 00:38:26 GMT

This came up in trying to set up 0.6.1 on HotWired, the first time 
ErrorDocument was being used to return a 401.html.  

Normal 401 response looks like:

fully [185] telnet 80 
Connected to  
Escape character is '^]'.  
GET /Login/ HTTP/1.0 

HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized 
Date: Thu, 20 Apr 1995 00:28:19 GMT 
Server: Apache/0.4
Content-type: text/html 
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="HotWired!" 

<HEAD><TITLE>HotWired Authentication Failed</TITLE></HEAD>.....

However 0.6.1 is acting like this:

fully 2# telnet fully 9999 
Connected to fully. 
Escape character is '^]'.  
GET /Login/ HTTP/1.0 

HTTP/1.0 401 Authorization Required 
Date: Thu, 20 Apr 1995 00:26:14 GMT 
Server: Apache/0.6.1 
Content-type: text/html

<HEAD><TITLE>HotWired Authentication Failed</TITLE></HEAD>.....

Netscape is able to handle this fine - XMosaic and others aren't, which 
meant we saw a lot of 401's when this was installed.  I don't know if it's
the "Unauthorized" vs. "Authorization Required" that's causing problems, 
or the fact there's a "Content-type: text/html" in the latte's response.  
Roy would know, but I know he's in conference hell (saw him for about 5 
seconds this morning before my speech at WebWorld.)

Until this is fixed the server can't be run on HotWired.
