IIS chokes on URLs with colons?
I'm programming a script that pulls data out of the PATH_INFO environment variable. All of a sudden, when I try sending some data that includes colons (":") in the URL, IIS chokes and returns a 404 error. Bull****.
Despite the fact that colons are permitted in the path portion of the URL, I tried encoding them and got the same result.
What is the deal with this? Is there any way to make it work right?
(both URLs work fine on Apache / Linux).
