Sorry, as soon as I define Gzip, it all falls over, this is using the
various x*.pas files with the DLL.
I'm testing my high level HTTP component and demo program (available
from the SSL download page), against my local IIS/5 server with the

is added and there is no response from the server, don't know whose
error this is, but it goes away when I force HTTP 1.0 to stop the gzip
When I do a GET, the stream returned is still compressed. Initially I

obviously silly but also the reason I said I'd never deploy this using
a DLL, but it's no better with the DLL in the program directory, and
there are no exceptions either warning the DLL is missing.

Not until the base compoment works. I don't see any logical means to
add 'extensions', I assume you mean simply replacing your
