Re: [Help-smalltalk] WebServer - socket won't close?

First, set up a servlet that requires no input ( just a straight GET). Then crank up your telnet session and type the following

GET /index.html HTTP/1.1

This is the same thing as You'll substitute the page that you're trying to access for the "/index.html" and your host name if you're not doing the testing on the box that the webserver is running. You should get a dump of the web page on your screen followed by the termination of the connection. If you're not getting the termination of the telnet session, then you can be sure that the socket hasn't been closed by the server.

OK, I am stumped.

I have a web server set up. It serves a page, via a Servlet; the
response goes to the client (wget or firefox), and then the client
hangs, presumably expecting the response to end when the connection is
closed. However, as far as gst is concerned, the socket has been closed.

I have confirmed that the response has gone to the client, and I've
confirmed that the socket has been closed by putting debug messages into
FileDescriptor >> #close (the return value of the 'fileOp: 1' is 0).

Once gst terminates, the client comes back to life, so it seems to me
that the socket is not actually getting closed, but I can't work out why.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
