The request is the actual HTTP request, like I showed in the first email.
The server is a servlet running in Tomcat 3.2 and it just return a 200 for
any POST. The post.exe doesn't get stuck on Windows. It does get the 200
response.

By "request" here, do you mean the HTRequest object
or the actual HTTP request, as experienced by the
HTTP server?

Is post.exe stuck at this point?  If so, it may be 
waiting for a "100 continue" response from the HTTP
server.

What server are you talking to?
