You might want to disguise the fact that your application is being served by a Lotus Domino HTTP server. For this reason, you can create an HTTP Response Header rule document to overwrite the Server response header with a custom value. Response Header rules can also be useful if you want custom headers to be sent from the server. These headers can then be read and possibly set to new values by your applications.
: In order to use these documents, the Domino server must be using Internet sites.
The Domino server can overwrite HTTP response headers if your application needs to do so. To create one of these rules, open a Web site document from the Internet site view of the server's address book. Select Web Site-> Create Rule as shown in the following figure.
On the Basics tab (see the following figure), change the Type of Rule field to be HTTP response headers
. Then configure the fields as shown in the figure.
One use is to support gzip files. Gzip is used by Domino for Domino Web Access, but it is not available to developers yet. You can create a Response Header rule to allow the use of gzip files that are stored on the hard drive. With the gzip rule, any file that has an extension of .gz that is requested from the site receives a Content-Encoding header with a value of "gzip". This causes the Web browser to decompress the file prior to using it to render the page.
