Am i missing something here or is nobody reading the error message?
Invalid URI in request means the URI you gave it is invalid - which it is
It should be GET /index.html
You can't just do GET index.html
You may also want to add a host header for sanity reasons:
GET /index.html HTTP/1.1
(the above assumes you wish to retrieve http://www.somesite.com/index.html)
