Ok i am not too sure if this is the right place for this question or not but here i go!

I am reading server log errors for WebSphere and getting few 404 errors. I am new at this.

[06/Jan/2007:04:00:00 -0500] "GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.0" 404 410 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727)" ...............

From what i have read on the web /favicon.ico is a favorite icon that the browser looks for on the server side, if it cannot find it then it generates a 404 error in the log only, i.e. the user does not see any 404 page at his side. If i am right in my understanding then i am ok with this error.

Ok on to next error i am getting.

[06/Jan/2007:04:00:19 -0500] "GET /something/Login/jsp HTTP/1.0" 404 38 "http://something.something.com/something/Login.jsp" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; .....................

ok i have changed the original url with 'something', but i am not too sure why i am getting this error in my log. Is there something wrong with GET /something/Login/jsp. did the user mistype the url by entering '/' instead of '.' after /something/Login? Or is that how the server logs it?

Is the file name Login.jsp or login.jsp?
If it's the latter, that would explain the error.

Shouldn't it be Login.jsp instead of Login/jsp? (a dot)
