Just tried it from my WML browser for Windoze
and it retreived it fine (it says "Hello. This is robert's wap page"
if you need proof :-)).
Anyway it seems Apache doesn't like the GET command
sent from the phone. This should be the same as
a generic HTTP request, i.e.
GET /index.wml HTTP/1.0
The phone must be sending something different?
Look @ the logs

Subject: [ILUG] WAP and apache
I've been trying to configure apache so it'll take WAP connections from my
trusty nokia, but something is afoot. I *thought* that I just had to add
MIME stuff into srm.conf and restart httpd, but this doesn't seem to work.
I'm trying to get what I assume is a valid .wml file (I nicked one from a
web site and stripped nearly all the text), but my phone tells me "bad
answer from origin server". If you feel like trying, point your phone at
The xfer log reports a valid GET command.
