Hi

Httpcli doesn't work correctly when you want to resume a file that is being
redirected on the server side...

for example:
the following URL will be auto redirected to some other site
http://download.microsoft.com/download/vstudio60ent/sp3/Full/WIN98/EN-US/vs6
sp3_1.exe

http://mssjus.www.conxion.com/download/vstudio60ent/sp3/Full/WIN98/EN-US/vs6
sp3_1.exe


This server does support resume


When I specify a number for ContentRangeBegin for
http://download.microsoft.com/download/vstudio60ent/sp3/Full/WIN98/EN-US/vs6
sp3_1.exe
and it will ended up being forwarded to
http://mssjus.www.conxion.com/download/vstudio60ent/sp3/Full/WIN98/EN-US/vs6
sp3_1.exe
without using the ContentRangeBegin I specified...  Instead of resuming, it
simply appened the downloading file from the beginning to the end of my file
that's already exist on my hard drive.

Is there a work around?  Perhapes, a fix?
