Novell Access Management 3 Linux Access Gateway
Novell Access Management 3 Support Pack 1 applied


Accelerating web server (path based) where large PDFs (>1MB) and MS word files cannot be downloaded correctly. Smaller PDFs were successfully downloaded. Looking at a trace showing the differences between the two PDF files and responses from Web server, we could see that the failure occured with multipart/byterange Content-Type responses:

Responses without this Content-type worked fine.


Apply the LAG update from nam3sp1ir3.tar.gz (Access Manager 3 Support Pack 1 Interim Release 3).
