User-Agent: Mozilla/4.7 [en] (Win98; I)
Description of problem:
using netscape client 4.x from a workstation after upgrade on server side from apache-1.3.22-2 to apache-1.3.22-6 the response from server is
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
The request line contained invalid characters following the protocol string.
Apache/1.3.22 Server at web.telemaco.infocamere.it Port 52445
for the URL
that contain blank character
(i asked for an user and password to access this site and maybe will be put here on bugzilla)
If the request come from Internet Explorer there isn't problem.
Before update from 1-3.22-2 to 1-3.22-2 there weren't problem also with netscape 4.x
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.from your browser call URL
Actual Results: if browser is netscape 4.x you take BAD REQUEST
Expected Results: a page that ask for user and password
After quite deeper study, i saw that normally who create url on server side shouldn't use blank but substitute it with %20 (IE browser make it
by default but netscape Not)
is it true?
