Strange access log messages - CGIDEV2



fixed

I have created a CGIDEV2 HTTP server and am serving a simple web page with
info from my database.

I appear to have a few iSeries Access users (always the same 2) that are
causing messages to be written to the access log. These users DO NOT use
my web page. I am thinking there must be something in iSeries Access
config or my HTTP server config that is causing this anomaly. I do not
understand how they could have anything at all to do with the HTTP server.
They do not even know the IP address or DNS name of the server. It seems
to happen when they first start iSeries Access emulation for the day.

The log messages are:
10.0.4.72 - - [16/Dec/2008:07:34:39 -0800] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.1" 200 -
10.0.4.72 - - [16/Dec/2008:07:34:39 -0800] "PROPFIND /QIBM HTTP/1.1" 405
230
10.0.4.72 - - [16/Dec/2008:07:34:39 -0800] "PROPFIND /QIBM HTTP/1.1" 405
230
