Subject AJP connector silent when RealPlayer is client.
Date Tue, 23 Apr 2002 21:00:14 GMT
After investigation of virtually every other possibility, it seems that
mod_jk (AJP 1.3) fails to respond to queries that originate from 
RealPlayer (v8 and RealOne on win32 tested).  The platform is RedHat 
Linux, running Apache 1.3 with mod_jk to Tomcat 4.0.1 (mod_jk from 
4.0.3).  Any other request to Apache from any other client works 
perfectly.  When RealPlayer requests a URL in a directory handled by 
AJP, it accepts the connection and the request, but returns no data and 
holds the connection open.  

We captured the exact request sent by RealPlayer, which is:

GET /uprizer/EDN/content/sp2.rm HTTP/1.0
Accept: */*
User-Agent: RMA/1.0 (compatible; RealMedia)
Icy-MetaData: 1
Bandwidth: 1544000
ClientID: WinNT_5.0_6.0.10.505_RealPlayer_RN9GPD_en-us_UNK
GUID: 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
Language: en-us
RegionData: 90404
SupportsMaximumASMBandwidth: 1
Connection: Keep-Alive
Host: sparrow:9001
Accept-Language: en-us
Accept-Encoding: gzip


If the lines from Bandwidth to RegionData is removed, the request is 
accepted and processed successfully.  

This also operates correctly under the Warp connector (though its 
unsuitable because of the binary file upload problem present in at least 
4.0.2 builds).  Also, if the request is made directly or proxied via 
Apache Proxying, it works fine.
