[REBOL] RE: proxy.r blues

From: galtbarber::mailandnews::com at: 4-Aug-2000 15:11

Elan, I just found out that if I use Netscape instead of IE, I don't get missing Icons. So obviously Netscape and IE are doing something differently. Maybe Netscape fails like IE to get the icons, but is willing to try another fetch on a fresh connection for each before giving up or something, whereas IE just gives up and doesn't retry. Not sure... I would still think that we should be able to make a proxy server or webserver with Rebol that works with IE. Right now it doesn't work with IE4, and I now have several versions of proxy.r including one that I ran with no modifications by me that I got off I also received a newer version of proxy.r from Sterling, but it uses do %..\setnet.r and I don't have setnet.r anywhere, but looking at the rest of the code, it uses the same basic approach, so I assume it too would fail like a dog on IE4. I don't know if some older version of the rebol.exe would make the proxy.r work with IE4, but I suspect it wouldn't. I maybe able to still get my Load Testing project to work using Netscape, but I would like to investigate the cause and have it fixed!!! I think that maybe rebol is doing something with tcp in windows that IE4 doesn't like? Well, I don't know much low level tcp/ip at all. Any suggestions? I wish I had thought earlier to try Netscape! But I didn't want to believe it it could make any difference! By the way, I tried every alternative, with http1.1, without, http1.1 with/wo proxy, etc, under the proxy settings on the connection tab and on the advanced tab on the IE browser, and none of that seemed to help. Thanks as always!! -Galt p.s. Should this be considered a bug reportable event?
