Error description

  • When Sterling B2B Integrator acts as an HTTP client, it
    adds the port to the HTTP header even when the port is the
    default
    port 80. (or 443 for HTTPS). Browser standard is to omit
    the port in the HTTP header when the default port is used.
    
    There must be an option to omit the port in
    the HTTP header when using the default HTTP or HTTPS ports.

    Circumvention: None
    

Problem summary

  • Users Affected:
    All HTTP Client services users
    
    Problem Description:
    When an HTTP request is sent to an HTTP server, the host header
    will always include the port, even when it is not necessary.
    This is correct behavior, but there are some cases where it can
    cause problems with some network infrastructures.
    
    Platforms Affected:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
