Subject Re: Response getting lost
Date Sat, 20 Nov 2004 16:21:16 GMT
I forgot that vital info, I had "follow redirects" on and not Redirect 
automaticlly. For my need this should right - follow redirects. The 
strange this is when running with the browser the same session and 
recording with ethereal I do not see any 302 for the server.
