    So I am relatively new to http(s) debugging so be patient with me.  I am an .net app developer for my company.

    The current situation is this; we have a website that we are wanting to use for training purposes.  We are primarily a Mac environment and this website does not seem to work on Safari.  It works on most browsers on the windows side.  I decided to do a trace using Fiddler, on my windows side, to see if I saw anything strange.

    I am noticing a 404 error being thrown in the traffic.  The interesting thing is that all my browsers; IE and Chrome successfully bring up the website.

    My question is how is this possible?  How do are these browsers getting around that error, that I am noticing in the Fiddler log, and successfully bringing up the website?

    I am just wondering if this could be the issue as to why Safari cannot load the website.  Trying to understand why or how these other browsers are getting around that error.  The error is never thrown or displayed to the user.
