Description Nick Levinson 2015-11-15 02:05:30 UTC
The W3C Link Checker, when I entered and allowed 10 levels of recursion (more than needed) and set it to send the Referer, reported error-500 for some URLs but I had no problem visiting those URLs:

from <>: <>, yielding "Can't connect to" ( failed for me (my browser twice immediately reported that "[t]he connection was reset") but worked for me)

from <>: <>, yielding "Can't connect to" ( failed for me as error-404 but worked for me)

For this bug report, I guessed the component and the version; the version is actually 4.81.
