Our Gauntlet Internet Firewall has an http proxy that if used in 
transparent mode does show problems with Netscape clients talking to 
Microsoft and Netscape servers. The proxy does pass through the headers 
and the server and client do think they have a persistant connection 
except that the proxy doesn't.

Clients configured with proxy handoffs don't normally have problems since 
the proxy persistant connection attempt by the client is ignored by the 
server.
