Non-Parsed Headers Stripped From CGI Applications That Have nph- Prefix in Name

The information in this article applies to:
  • Microsoft Internet Information Server 4.0


If a CGI application that is designed to return non-parsed headers has an "nph-" prefix in the application name, the headers are stripped and not sent to client. This problem occurs after you apply Microsoft Windows NT Service Pack 6 (SP6), or later, hot fixes for Internet Information Server (IIS).


This is a regression to another fix that was created to handle headers when you use CGI output in an .stm or .shtml page. By using the #EXEC CGI directive in an .stm page, you can execute a CGI application and have the contents merged with the rest of the .stm page. To facilitate this correctly, a fix was created that strips the headers from CGI applications. This corrected the SSINC scenario, but caused stand-alone "nph-" CGI applications not to send any headers to the client.


A supported fix is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to correct the problem described in this article and should be applied only to systems experiencing this specific problem.
