Thanks a lot for all those details; it really rules out a few things. Unfortunately I
cannot access the link you gave me; I get a 502 or 500 error (both on the FTP and/or
We have done much the same with KOI, Big5 and UTF8 and I can vouch that it should work.
Just a few questions;
Could you outline a few ports/IP addresses; i.e which machine fetches
what over what port/protocol ? And let me know the URLs so I can
have a look ?
What charset are you using; and if you are using a non-8 bit set, do
you use something like UTF6, UTF7, UTF8 or PORB to encode things ?
And have you set anything like special mime types, or are using things
like MIME/Base64pm to encode on the fly ?
220.127.116.11 fetches some Chinese files on 18.104.22.168 over port 80 on
22.214.171.124. The 126.96.36.199 is a ftp testing site on C(hina)
E(ducation) (and) R(esearch) NET(work), so perhaps it can not be access
from outside of the CERNET. :( And I have not found another site like it.
I will try to found one.
The charset I used is "ch-cn" ( in IE5.0) and gb2312 (in Netscape). I use
UTF8 in IE5.0.
I am not sure whether the browser or the proxy server has used the MIME or
something else to encode on the fly. Would you tell me how to know that?
