Hello, Jigsaw friends !

I am interested in using jigsaw as PICS Label Bureau, and
in testing its PICSFilter (attaching PICS Labels via 
this filter).
I have followed the steps recommended in Jigsaw 
documentation, then, after having all set, and labels 
created, I have tried to test it, with Microsoft 
Internet Explorer, and with Cyber Patrol Headquarters 
(www.microsys.com). None of them seems to send requests 
to my Label Bureau. I have activated Jigsaw trace and I 
have put some extra "println"s in sensible places.

I have seen that, in any case, Internet Explorer do not use
the "Protocol-Request:" HTTP header field for 
requesting PICS labels.

The only ways I was able to test that PICSFilter is 
set, and the LabelBureauResource is visible was, 
respectively, 
for filter: by making telnet on Jigsaw port, and 
typing a HTTP GET request myself,
for resource: addresing the LabelBureau directly from 
browser (by its URL, with the required parameters).

Can anybody help me in this problem ?
First I have to know which of the three ways of 
transfering PICS labels use popular client software, 
how to configure it in order to look for labels on my 
LabelBureau, and then, maybe, I will be able to see if 
someting is wrong with Jigsaw configuration I have made.
Thanks to enyone that have some advice for me on this 
topic.

Best regards,
