    Some of our users behind firewalls (watchguard in particular) are reporting
    that they can't access our site. This is the type of error they are
    getting:

    02/06/04 07:27 http-proxy[13348]: [200.8.8.31:2990 204.225.90.54:80]
    removing bogus HTTP header "GET
    /Disclaimer.aspx?Mode=0&Page=1&vs=1&rlt=&cp=&pt=32&mp=0-0-0&mrt=-1-0-0&Beds=
    3-0&Baths=2-0&f=&ft=all&o=A&

    The site in question is www.mls.ca, clicking on a province, selecting
    checkboxes from the left, clicking "Seach" and then doing an advanced search
    from the form that comes up.

    We are obviously sending headers that don't conform to the RFC, but are at a
    loss to identify the specific problem. If anyone could shed some light onto
    this, it'd be greatly appreciated.

    Only a wild guess: why does your query string end in an ampersand (&)?

    John,
    I don't think it does, I think their firewall log stripped part of it out
    for display and that was just copied & pasted. Will definetly set up a test
    to see if that's the specific problem though.

    Also, Karl, could we see the entire header before it's stripped?

  5. As i understand you are using GET.
    I am affraid that in this case URL gets too long.

    Change method to POST and try.

    George.
