I'm getting a 404 http status code for this url, too.
I think this isn't part of the challenge, is it?

hell, is just dont get it!

I allways get "Sorry, I'm too lazy to lookup this portion of the number (2)"
So it must be very close...(before i got a one in the braket..)

Can't be that much hard to get the right range :'(

well, its late here in germany, but the right solution must be ((10^51)-1) till ... or iam wrong?
Any hinds?

I have a problem with this challenge: i tried all versions of header fields from RFC 2616, but i always get "400 Response body too long", even if i only specify one character (byte) - range.
Am i on the wrong trail?


Same here, after sifting through various websites about adding headers, no matter how I try do get it done (wget --header=, even telnet), I can't seem to find the correct way to forge the request to get the answer. Any hints?

Thanks,

It's really not that hard, the correct request is only like three lines, not even something obscure. And there are loads of relevant sources of information out there on the net.

Also, I don't particularly like that "telnet" program and most of the time I use putty in raw mode to do that kind of stuff, since I've already got that installed anyways.

Another hint: try the numbers you have +/-1.

I have 3 lines, according to all the documentation I read by now, these 3 lines are perfectly correct, tried various +/-1 variations - still get 400 all the time.
Thank you though.

"that 'telnet' program" comes with windows (which I use at work), nothing extra to install, and won't be killed by some company "safeguard" processes, unlike puTTY (which I like and use a lot) which first has to be downloaded to be available at all.

Now this was a fine challenge which taught me something new about the Hypertext Transfer Protocol.

Wasn't actually difficult to get the required part of the data, still, the answer is not right, i tried +-2 too.

my sequence begins with 3072...

The example in the problem description helped.
