Subject IIS doesn't scale
Date Thu, 07 May 1998 01:49:18 GMT
IIS insists on using the IP address of the webserver when generating
redirects for requests w/o the Host: header. i.e.

GET /blah HTTP/1.0

results in this header:

Location: http://10.0.0.1/blah/

Just imagine how badly this works behind a tcp rewriter like Cisco's
LocalDirector... so much for scalability.  According to the fellow who
told me this, microsoft claims this is a feature, not a bug.

It's nice to know that we get this right with UseCanonicalNames on or off
-- we'll use the ServerName if there's no Host: header.
