Subject Cookie Passing Problem
Date Wed, 24 Jul 2002 23:58:40 GMT
Hi All,
I have been getting this problem only with Apache Servers (I tried it 
with versions 1.3.12 and version 2.0.36)
Part of the application I am involved in implements cookie 
authentcation, calling the verification page with the login information 
and then propagating the saved cookie information with each request, I 
am using raw sockets to perform the operation (in java), It always 
giving me the same error with Apache, calling the authentication page 
works fine, however, when I try to pass the Cookie header field set to 
the saved cookie value, the socket keeps waiting for the response that 
never come.
The same mechanism I used it with IIS server and it works with no problems,

here is my login request header
POST /admin/ProcessLogin.jsp HTTP/1.1
Host: host
Connection: CLOSE
Accept: text/html
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)
Referer: http://host:8080/admin/index.html
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Cache-control: private
Content-Length: 44



Response header :
HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
Date: Wed, 24 Jul 2002 23:49:38 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.36 (Win32) mod_jk/1.2.0
Set-Cookie: JSESSIONID=893DE7C2176B3B10536D08D600FA419A;Path=/admin
Location: http://host:8080/admin/AdminHome.jsp
Content-Length: 0
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1


I then submit the my request for the other page:
GET /admin/ListPages.jsp HTTP/1.1
Host: host
Accept: text/html
Cookie: JSESSIONID=893DE7C2176B3B10536D08D600FA419A;Path=/admin
User-agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)
Content-Type: text/html


The socket keeps waiting and no response shows, I dont know where the 
problem is and I really appreicate it if you can help me with that
