Symptoms

The URL rewrite functionality for the Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server's "um-output" filter, when used in a reverse proxy server configuration, rewrites a line of an html page incorrectly. The incorrectly written line is missing a "/" in the rewritten content.

For example, if the back end web server responds with "a/b/c" in the response body, the response forwarded by the web proxy server is "/a/bc". That is, an html tag, such as:

<img src="/a/b/c.gif">

in a web page served by the back end web server is rewritten by the web proxy server as:

<img src="a/bc.gif">

Note the missing "/" character between "b" and "c".
