I've merged your HttpProt changes into the latest version, and added  
the LocationChangeMaxCount feature to prevent endless relocation looping.

The component is backward compatible, when option 
httpoEnableContentCoding is not used, but does now need your 
HttpContCod.pas unit to be added to the ICS distribution.  

Using your HttpCCodGzip unit, while enabling compression adds the 
correct header to the protocol, suggesting it's all linked OK, 
unfortunately the HEAD request just gets a status of 0. 

= Connected to: web4
> HEAD /dunman/default.asp HTTP/1.0
> Accept: image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, */*
> Accept-Encoding: gzip
> User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; ICS)
> Host: web4
Can Not Access URL: http://web4/dunman/default.asp,  (0)

I suspect that the encoding header should not be sent with the HEAD 
request, I'll try and change the code tomorrow.

You must use the content of HttpContCod.zip that is in the ICS web page 
(it is 
the first in the list of beta). Probably it is not in sync with latest 
but for evaluation it should not matter.
To test it you can use the standard HttpTst demo. Uncompress the zip in 
same dir and add HttpCCodGzip to the uses of one unit of the project. So 
can test it without messing your ICS installation.
If you don't add HttpCCodGzip then the gzip encoding will not be used 
and the 
component should work as usual.
The header of HttpContCod.pas contains a brief description.

Bye, Maurizio.
