Use "HEAD" instead of "GET" when opening the port. ie... ---8<---

HTTP/1.1 200 OK Date: Fri, 15 Feb 2002 11:43:28 GMT Server: Apache/1.3.20 (Unix) FrontPage/ Last-Modified: Wed, 13 Feb 2002 19:01:52 GMT ETag: "595d6e-351e-3c6ab820" Accept-Ranges: bytes Content-Length: 13598 Connection: close Content-Type: text/html
>> close port
