[IDV #KOO-280301]: Reading data via URLs in IDV: setting Content-Length and Accept-Ranges headers

Hi Dave,

I will check with our web admin person. However, those are both pretty standard 
headers so I would be surprised if they aren't in the default setup. You won't 
always get "Content-Length" response headers, for instance, you won't get it if 
the response contains a "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" header. I'm not sure about 
situations where the "Accept-Range: bytes" response header isn't included.

Are you seeing errors in the IDV dealing with these headers? Or are you looking 
at the response headers directly? Is your server publicly available so I can 
take a look at it?
