I've been playing for a couple hours now to see if I can get Server.Transfer and Response.Filter to work together so I can use the free HttpCompressionModule

Currently there is a glitch in .NET that will prevent this from working without a hot fix. Well, my web hosting company does not have the hot fix, and doesn't seem eager to put it on. So I'm on a mission.

I think I figured out a way to make it work with Server.Transfer
I changed it to work off of the PostRequestHandlerExecute event instead of the BeginRequest event.

My site seems to work great with the change. One of my clients sites also seems to work great.

Anyone else out there want to help me verify this find? I can send you the new dll, or you can download the code and try it for yourself.

This is a huge deal for a few thousand or so of us (

We'd appreciate it if you could elaborate on how specifically you fixed "it". Did you poke into the Blowery *.cs?

I thought sever.Transfer() has an implicit Context.Response.End() call. Won't this skip the remaining event pipeline; specifically any pending PostRequestHandlerExecute event code???
