PDF in HTTP multipart response: missing boundary?



If I add my PDF to the HTTP response directly, everything works fine, so we can assume that the PDF is correct.

I need to create this response as <i>multipart/form-data</i>, and when I add the same PDF to the body of the <i>data</i> multipart (either by using ADD_CDATA or ADD_DATA methods), I get error message from the client: <i>data: Invalid argument</i>.

I examined the response by tunneling program and didn't see anything suspicious. Please see the response below.

Does anyone has experience with this?

Thanks in advance!
