> But recently, when I start to make requests to a Netscape FastTrack
> server a serious problem
> come out: when I use postform to make a request, I have this results:
> 1. with HTTP 1.1 the client gets the response data, but waits the server

> 2. with HTTP 1.0 the client blocks itself on the "receive" in the

> The libwww and postform are compiled on an AIX 4.3 and the Netscape

> NT 4.0.
> In HTTP 1.1 it seems to be a bad format of response: the postform in

> "MIME Parser. BAD - there seems to be a body but no length. This must be

> Have you experienced this problem right now? Can you help me?
> Thanks for your attention.
