Forum OpenACS Q&A: ad_return_error breaks in IE 5.0
page." Nothing else is shown. Obviously this is Very Bad.
One workaround: change 500 in ad_return_error (in ad-
defs.tcl.preload) to 200.
(Would've posted this to the SDM but I didn't see any "tcl" category.)
You can actually turn it of in MSIE and get the error message. I forget the exact option, though...
Also, LONG error pages are correctly passed back to the user. Apparently, MSIE assumes a long page comes from IIS and is a "correctly formatted" error page, and doesn't need to be replaced.]
braindead in handling this error code. One supposedly new
feature of AOLserver 3.2: it detects IE and automagically
replaces 500 error codes with more IE-friendly data. Can anyone
confirm that this works? Haven't had time to try aolserver 3.2 just

I didn't change anything on OpenACS, so it should be outputting the error. I will to test IE tomorrow.
The 302 is likely being returned because you didn't send a host header in your telnet session. If the setting (I don't recall the name of it offhand) is turned on then any request without the proper host header is redirected to the server's domain name.
