VsDebuggerCasualtyData and XML-RPC.NET

October 11, 2002 Written by Charles Cook

Mike Tuyo emailed me about a problem which can occur when using XML-RPC.NET on the client side if the XML_RPC server makes assumptions about the size of the HTTP request: if running the library in debug mode from within Visual Studio HTTP requests contain a VsDebuggerCasualtyData header. This is very large and cause problems if the server assumes a max size of the HTTP request, for example 2048 bytes (the buffer size that caused Mike's problem).
