        Hello everyone,

It seems that Netscape Communicator 4.01 uses method GET
instead of CONNECT. (Here, Squid 2.0 RELEASE)

While Netscape is trying to retrieve:

Then I've got the following error:
 "Unsupported Request Method and Protocol"

and my access.log said:

908377956.420 1039 localhost TCP_MISS/400 1067 GET - SINGLE_PARENT/parent1 text/html

From my squid.conf:
acl SSL method CONNECT
never_direct allow SSL
cache_peer_access parent3 deny SSL

acl SSL_ports port 443 563
http_access deny CONNECT !SSL_ports

So why Netscape used GET instead of CONNECT ?
Thanks in advance.
