 A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
 directories. This draft is a work item of the HyperText Transfer Protocol 
 Working Group of the IETF.                                                

       Title     : HTTP/1.1 305 and 306 Response Codes                     
       Author(s) : J. Cohen
       Filename  : draft-cohen-http-305-306-responses-00.txt
       Pages     : 8
       Date      : 06/16/1997

The HTTP/1.1 RFC specifies a response code '305 Use Proxy' which is 
intended to cause a client to retry the request using a specified proxy 
server.  This functionality is important, but underspecified in the current
spec.  The spec does not specify for how long or which URLs the redirect 
applies to, or how proxies can deal with or generate similar responses.  
This draft proposes a specification for both the 305 response and a new 
response, "306 Switch Proxy".

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-cohen-http-305-306-responses-00.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
