Proxy Closing Connection on "&&&" Characters

Proxy Closing Connection on "&&&" Characters
February 03, 2014 10:01AM
Hello, I have a problem using proxies, this happens in both nginx and apache.
I have a tomcat app that runs on port 8081, it validates messages (HL7V2) input on to
a screen. If I access the application (Directly) by http://hostname:8081/app it works fine.

When I run thru a proxy(as I said, I tried apache and nginx, same results)
http://proxyname and proxy pass it to http://hostname:8081/app when
a user has three ampersands (&&&) in the message, the proxy closes the connection
and nothing gets sent back. As I said, if I do it to the tomcat address directly it works fine,
only when I run it thru a proxy do I get the error.

I think it has to do with the & character and URLs, but if I put 1 in "&", it works, it put two in "&&" it works, i put three in "&&&" it fails. They are being encoded correctly, in the body I see "%26%26%26" which is the correct ascii encoding, so it shoul not be itnerpreted as a URL, any Ideas?
