Possible problem with web server responses:

I receive responses such as the following from a web server:


   *** [tid=10e 108] Receiving response ( 30/8/2000 14:59:10 )

   HTTP/1.1 200 OK
   Server: Netscape-Enterprise/4.0
   Date: Wed, 30 Aug 2000 19:02:26 GMT
   Content-length: 148
   Content-type: image/gif
   Connection: Close
   Connection: keep-alive


I believe that the "Connection: Close" immed followed by "Connection:
keep-alive" is causing a problem (IE 5.5 handles it OK, but a testing
tool I'm using does not).

I have reviewed several of the RFC's regarding HTTP, but I'm not sure
how to interpret.

Q: Is the following legal as part of a response header?

   Connection: Close
   Connection: keep-alive


Thanks in advance.
