1. Solaris 2.5.1 with JDK 1.1.5 and JSDK2.0 as well as
2. Solaris 2.7 with JDK 1.2.1 and JSDK2.0
We have a servlet that worked just fine on environment 1 running
Apache 1.3.9 + ApacheJServ 1.0

The problem is in a doGet() when we do like this:

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException,
IOException {
  PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter (response.getOutputStream());
  out.print("Some HTML header stuff...");
  out.println("<P>host=" + request.getRemoteHost());
  out.print("Some HTML footer stuff...");

With Apache JServ 1.0 the request.getRemoteHost() returned the client-computers

When we upgraded to Apache JServ 1.1 (both on environment 1 and 2) the
request.getRemoteHost() started returning an empty string.
See above code snippet.
Unfortunately the servers are on our intranet :(
I have studied the webcvs tree, but haven't been able to figure out what goes wrong.
There has apparently been some work done to the assignments of env_vars
in readData() in org.apache.jserv.JServConnection.java between 1.0 and 1.1.
