Sorry, the last part was cut off! The 'complete' HTTP header:


HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Content-type: multipart/parallel; boundary="ping"
Content-length: 2048;
Accept-Ranges: bytes;

--ping
Content-Id: Part1-ID
Content-Range: bytes 0-511/2048

[..SomeContentWith512bytesOfLengh..]
--ping
Content-Id: Part2-Identifier
Content-Range: bytes 512-1023/2048
Content-Location: http://sas4.domain.ext/resource/part2
--ping
Content-Id: Part3-SomeRandom
Content-Range: bytes 1024-1535/2048
Content-Location: http://sas2.domain.ext/resource/part3
--ping
Content-Id: Part4-Reference
Content-Range: bytes 1536-2047/2048
Content-Location: http://sas8.domain.ext/resource/part4
--ping--
