Subject [users@httpd] Slightly OT, HTTP 1.0/1.1 Who decides?
Date Fri, 28 Feb 2003 17:53:05 GMT
I am running a web cache server and it has trouble doing redirects when
some browsers hit it.  For example, Netscape 4.79 fails, 7.0x works
about half the time, IE5.5 works most of the time, 6.0 works all the

When I look at the access_log, the only difference is in the GET
string, all the successes use HTTP 1.1.  All the failures use HTTP 1.0. 
1.1 always works, 1.0 always fails.

Question:  Who decides which version of HTTP to use?  The browser or
the server?
