Subject [users@httpd] mod_proxy incorrectly decodes %2C when proxying URL to back-end?
Date Thu, 07 Sep 2006 16:43:42 GMT
We have a mod_proxy (2.0.54) front-end proxying to a back-end MS IIS
server.  One type of URL that we use is causing problems because
mod_proxy is decoding an encoded comma in the URL as it proxies the
request to the back-end (we determined this with a packet sniffer):

between browser and mod_proxy:

between mod_proxy and back-end server:,z831%7E238.asp

As you can see, mod_proxy is decoding ONLY the comma (%2C), which is
causing our back-end server to return a 404.  Is there a workaround
for this in Apache?  I'm familiar with AllowEncodedSlashes (which we
also have set On), but it seems like there should be an

thanks for any help and guidance.
