Hi,

We're using our own proxy system to handle large requests, and it's been working fine with relatively large data. But we just tried it with a very large request (the url is 11000 chars long) and we're getting this error from ESRI:

<H2>The requested URL could not be retrieved</H2>
<HR noshade size="1px">
<P>
While trying to retrieve the URL:

Some aspect of the requested URL is incorrect.  Possible problems:

I've noticed that the URL has been cut off at some point. Any ideas on what the problem may be? Thanks!
