Subject Re: Slow POST?

Hi there,

I'm refining my question from my previous post.

The delay mentioned only occurs with Navigator (4.7) as client, not with
IE. I've browsed through the Tomcat sources and some servlet resources
on the net, and I found something about Navigator adding extra CR-LFs
after a POST request that are not allowed by HTTP. Could this be causing
the delay (maybe when reading from the ServletInputStream)? Has anybody
else experienced the same problem? Is this Tomcat specific?

> Netscape Navigator 4.7

I would really appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
