Subject: Re: Apache 1.3b3 Released!


I am very interested in the following topics since I think I have the
same problems. Are you able to explain me a little what was wrong with
Win32 and what was the fix or workaround. Maybe I can find directly the
answer in the apache code ?

Thanks in advance.

I am using apache for our intranet on an Alpha server and it works very
well. No problem at all. Good work !
