http://enterprise.netscape.com/products/contentsvcs/enterprise.html

The server seems to be running the latest version, but

  % http-head http://enterprise.netscape.com/
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Server: Netscape-Enterprise/6.0 AOL
  Date: Sat, 02 Nov 2002 21:03:55 GMT
  Content-type: text/html
  Content-length: 0
  Connection: close

is obviously still buggy, GET returns

  ...
  Content-length: 7504

i.e., the Content-Length length header is plain wrong for HEAD requests.
At least it does not respond with 500...
