Subject [jira] [Commented] (DTACLOUD-25) Accept headers processing problem: XML format is being returned to IE (all versions) instead of HTML
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2011 21:22:36 GMT


Justin Clift commented on DTACLOUD-25:

Using Fiddler2 again to capture the communication between the WinXP client and the Deltacloud

This is the request from IE8 to the DC server:

  GET HTTP/1.1
  Accept: image/gif, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, image/pjpeg, application/x-shockwave-flash,
application/x-ms-application, application/x-ms-xbap, application/, application/xaml+xml,
  Accept-Language: en-us
  User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727;
.NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
  Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
  Connection: Keep-Alive

(Note, needed to install .NET to get fiddler working. .NET adds itself to the request headers.
 Doesn't affect IE8 + Deltacloud communication though.)

This is the response from the Deltacloud server:

  HTTP/1.1 406 Not Acceptable
  X-Runtime: 0.000656
  Connection: close
  Server: thin 1.2.5 codename This Is Not A Web Server

It kind of looks like the Deltacloud server is the one giving the 406, and not IE?

> Unfortunately it's completely busted (see attached screenshot).
> That attached screenshot ISN'T a "View Source" display.  It's the actual display of what's
shown for the URL.
> Using Firefox 3.5.x on the same URL on the same system works fine, as expected.  i.e.
not a problem with the server installation
