Question : What is http header?
Answer : HTTP headers expose a great deal of information about your client as well as the server you are working, the application you are designing, as well as the environment you are in (SSL, etc.).The functionality for this is held in “Request.ServerVariables”, so you only need to access that. For example, Request.ServerVariables(“ALL_HTTP”) or Request.ServerVariables(“HTTP_USER_AGENT”). You need to know the specific name of the header that you want. It is extremely simple to display all the HTTP headers in ASP. Here’s a code snippit that will do it for you: < % for each header in Request.ServerVariables response.write header & ” = ” & Request.ServerVariables(header) & ” < br>< br> ” next % > Just delete the spaces near the angle brackets and run it on IIS. You’ll get a list of all the HTTP headers along with the actual value for the header. Make sure to try this with different browsers and on different computers with different operating systems if you can. You’ll immediately see the differences.
