This should NOT happen.. if you're talking of a Web Server.

GET is part of the HTTP protocol.

Any web server, to be a web server, has to implement the HTTP protocol, so, in the strict sense, there's no "web server not supporting GET".

As I tried to post before, but unsuccesfully because
an error of the service, the answer from Julio
is not (completely) correct.
I will answer with more details if the question is re-opened.

Hi jerland,

you checked the wrong grade and gave me the points.

Your only chance is to ask EE support to reopen this question for you: to do so, go to Customer Service/Expert-Exchange and submit a zero points question, telling them your problem, and which is the Url of this question.

I'm also very curious to see OM "complete" answer, since this misunderstanding has caused me a D grade.

A question cannot be re-opened once it is moved to the previously asked questions.  I'm going to refund the points assigned to this question so a new question can be posted.  Watch for it in the new questions.

It would be a good idea if the URL of the new question was posted as a comment to this question.
