Subject [Apache 1.3] force-response-1.0 ignored for HTTP/1.1 requests
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2003 02:14:14 GMT

I am dealing with a broken proxy which understands chunked
Transfer-Encoding on the proxy to server side, but does the wrong thing on
the proxy to client side (it sends the "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" header
from the server to proxy response, but sends the content unchunked).

The easiest fix seems to be to always respond with an HTTP/1.0 response. I
tried adding "SetEnv force-response-1.0 Yes" to the Apache server, but if
Apache gets an HTTP/1.1 request (which it does in this case), it continues
to send an HTTP/1.1 response. Additionally setting downgrade-1.0 didn't
change anything.

Is there a way to force Apache to send an HTTP/1.0 response even in
response to an HTTP/1.1 request?

I can send example transactions or open a bug if this would help.
