Can you please try this without the firewall inbetween you and the webserver and see

I think the initial post pretty much sums it up. I haven't got any sample page/app 
ready with authentication, cookies _and_ a firewall in between. But 
Dragonflymail/Squirrelmail is pretty easy to install and should yield the desired 
Don't you have kinda regression test suites ready at php's?
Now this would be a very useful addition.

Do I understand you correctly that thttpd/PHP does not read the POST data completely?  
If that is the case, PHP might not be able to get the correct POST data.

Can you provide an example for this situation (i.e. a form which gets submitted to a 
server which displays the variables it received)?

I installed thttpd-2.20b with PHP 4.0.3pl1 with --with-trans-sid, --with-imap 
--with-sockets --with-thttpd.
I have Squirrelmail and Dragonflymail installed to check them out. Both worked.
When trying to access them via a company's firewall, login was not possible, neither 
via trans-sid nor cookies. I ran a network trace against both thttpd and apache (on 
which the very same box with the very same apps work) and saw that thttpd is very 
quick (as not to say impatient) at session build-up. It simply does not seem to wait 
until the client had answered *all* questions. It seems that the client has no time to 
transmit session IDs *and* POSTing the login information.
I've read somewhere that someone had as similar problem with apache which he solved by 
adding a delay in the session-buildup routine.
I don't know if this is a thttpd problem or php-in-thttpd problem. Other pages (that 
had nothing to do with session stuff) just work fine.

For the time being, I leave apache installed although its footprint is way bigger than
