>Confidential:   no
>Severity:       non-critical

>Submitter-Id:   apache
>Arrival-Date:   Wed Oct  1 00:20:02 1997
>Originator:     philipp@enteka.com
>Organization:
apache
>Release:        1.2.3
>Environment:
Solaris 2.6, using gcc (2.7.2.2)
>Description:
When using Apache as the FTP Proxy for a browser (like Netscape),
and then accessing an ftp: URL, Apache doesn't give the length
of the file being downloaded so the browser can't display the
progress of the transfer (or how much time is remaining to
download).
>How-To-Repeat:
Trivial.  With Netscape, just hit an ftp: URL and do a "Save as...".
It will give "unknown" as the total file length.
>Fix:
Yeah.  Send the Content-Length: as part of the response
>Audit-Trail:
>Unformatted:
