Communication problem between CGI and browser
Posted on 1998-06-19
Client : Nestcape Navigator or Nescape Communicator or MSIE 3
Server : Netscape Enterprise Server
When I submit a form, calling my CGI, my client doesn't understand the ending of this CGI. So, the client is still looping, even when the end of the CGI is reached. The CGI accesses a database, and then sends an HTML page to the client, with a Location. Sometimes, when the processing of the CGI is fast, there is no problem and the HTML page is correctly displayed.
On the server side, in all cases, the response is correct (for instance : ... "GET myCGI ... HTTP/1.0" 200 847, where 847 is the size (in bytes) of the HTML page.
