Please Whitelist This Site?
I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)
If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.
If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.
Thanks for your understanding!
Sincerely, Charles Kozierok

HTTP Response Message Format
(Page 1 of 3)
Up and down; east and west; black
and white; yin and yang. Well, you get the idea. Each request message
sent by an HTTP client to a server prompts the server to send back a
response message. Actually, in certain cases the server may in
fact send two responses, a preliminary response followed by the real
one. Usually though, one request yields one response, which indicates
the results of the server's processing of the request, and often also
carries an entity (file or resource) in the message body.
Like requests, responses use their
own specific message format that is based on the HTTP
generic message format. The format, shown
in Figure 318,
