Hi, I hope someone still reads these posts, I am stuck in a bit of a mess.
I need to send a string via POST to a .dll on the client, then receive a
string back and parse it.
For some reason, M$ IIS closes any ports after streaming data *EXCEPT* after
a POST to a Web Service DLL.  The connection lingers and waits for libwww to
time out (which is much too long for me to wait, as the response has been
sent back already).
Java handled this OK, but JNI turned out to be way too slow, hence the C
I think Java looked at the Content-length header, and if the body content
length matched it would assume that the transaction is done.
Any ideas?
