Subject Re: [users@httpd] unexpected EOF on client side when Apache sends applet class
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2007 23:36:53 GMT
In response to solprovider:

I'm compiling on the server, so that should not be a problem?

and to Michael:

"In httpd.conf searching for 'timeout' should find a couple. Usually the
main timeout should be set for 300. "

I need to check that tomorrow.

"I also assume the system lets non-http traffic of > 256 bytes through 
without problem? If you have a non-applet will larger files transfer okay?"

I actually tested the problem with text files using wget, so FTP transfers are affected as
I then verified the problem by making an empty applet to get it's size below 
256 bytes and that transferred via the browser fine.

I'm pretty certain this problem is due to data over 256 bytes. Is there anything in Apache
that would
create that limit? Or isn't there a mechanism in the server to break a large file up into
several packets? wrote: How did you transfer the class file to the server?  Did you
mode FTP instead of binary mode?  The unexpected file size may be
because the file has been corrupted.  That would cause EOF errors.
Verify the class file on the server is correct -- maybe comparing MD5
checksums.  Or transfer the source and compile on the server.

Check out PSCP from the putty suite of network tools for transferring
files from Windows to Linux (openssh).  I have a batch file in the
SendTo directory so I can right-click/send any file to my Linux home
