Problems Downloading Files With IE8 After Adding Cache-Control Headers On Oracle iPlanet Web Server (Doc ID 1449821.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle iPlanet Web Server - Version 6.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On Oracle iPlanet Web Server, the download application is broken using the IE8 client to download files from the SSL enabled Web Server with the following configuration in the obj.conf (or vs-obj.conf for iPlanet Web Server 7.0):

ObjectType fn="set-variable" remove-headers="if-none-match"
ObjectType fn="set-variable" set-srvhdrs="cache-control=no-cache, no-store"
ObjectType fn="set-variable" set-srvhdrs="pragma=no-cache"

When using Firefox the download works.

On other iPlanet Web Server environments that do not have the 3 ObjectType configurations shown above, the download works on IE8 and Firefox with and without SSL.
