"Non Compliant HTTP" drops HTTP traffic for reason "illegal header format detected: Malformed HTTP protocol name in request "
Symptoms
  • Traffic is dropped for "Non Compliant HTTP" with the reason:
    "illegal header format detected: Malformed HTTP protocol name in request"
  • HTTP version 0.9 is used.
Cause

HTTP version 0.9 is not supported.

The gateway is expecting a HTTP version number in the GET request (ex. 'GET /index.html HTTP/1.0') but in HTTP Version 0.9, there is no version in the GET request (ex. 'GET /index.html').
