Does Neoload 6.x support Deflate Content Encoding in the Request?

One of the requests in my application consists of Deflate Encoding, and during replay I face 500-internal server error.
Just curious to know if Neoload supports Deflate content encoding in the Requests.

The current version of NeoLoad does not support Deflate, only gzip.
NeoLoad will also handle Deflate for handling responses in the coming version 6.4.

Anyway deflate is not handled for the request sent as POST. On which side do you suspect the Deflate issue: request or response?

Suspect it to be in Request.
In the Recorded Request, I can see the following "Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate". However during replay, the request contains only "Accept-Encoding: gzip".

This is the current normal behavior, NeoLoad (before coming 6.4) tells the server it only support gzip, and the server is supposed to send the content gzip encoded (not deflate), if we wants to compress. All servers support gzip.

So the 500 Internal Error should be related to something else. If the error page doesn't give any detail, you should look at server logs why the call failed.
