Symptoms


On iPlanet Web Server 7.0, utilizing the Reverse Proxy functionality to send requests for SAS Web Reports application, the request would continuously loop with a 302 response. When going directly to the origin server to get the URI to the SAS Web Reports application, the response has no problems.


iPlanet access logs reports the loop:
