Subject [OFF TOPIC] more IIS tricks...
Date Thu, 26 Feb 1998 03:43:05 GMT
Tell your client to use www.microsoft.com:80 as a proxy.

Then go to http://www.netscape.com/

That is an awesome way to convince (fill in name of paranoid) that (fill
in name of company running IIS) has taken over (fill in name of other
company on the web).  <g>

IIS will accept full URLs in requests, but just assumes the hostname must
be local so it strips it.  Probably a lot of servers w/o built in
proxy that do this, so IIS is far from alone... and the behaviour is
arguable.  But it still produces cool results.
