Subject More on redirection problems
Date Fri, 10 Nov 2000 01:29:26 GMT
Hola a todos:

After some more research in the issues related to NATs and tomcat
standalone, and more reading, i think i have found a real and common
problem in tomcat 3.X, that it's not present in Tomcat 4.0 ( this is
from a brief reading of the code ).

The problem, i think i'd found, is that when tomcat does a redirection
do not use the "host" header received, he tries to recontruct host+port
info based on his own port and the name (or ip ) found  in the Host
header of the request, that IMHO is bad because the real uri (host+port)
is dictated by the Host header..

But in addition i'd found that the relevant RFC for tomcat3 ( that is a
HTTP 1.0 server AFAIK ) dont say anything about Host headers or
something similar at all.

I have prepared a simple patch for tomcat 3.2 and 3.x about this.

Any comments?

Saludos ,
Ignacio J. Ortega
