Subject Re: [users@httpd] issue on 304 return code
Date Wed, 05 Jul 2006 22:36:02 GMT
Thx a lot Joshua for your quick reply.  

We did some debugging.  SiteMinder indeed returned all
SiteMinder headers( Cookies and SessionID), but some
how Apache in the front stripped them off and return
304. We did not implement cache, I don't know why it
has if-modify-since in the header and return 304?  Do
you know why?
