    I'm getting GET Header length of 32 bytes. is this the RFC Standard? If not, what should it be?

    I don't think there is a set size for an HTTP header. I think it depends on what data is in the header and is probably different for every website.

    I couldn't find a specific length in the RFC, but considering that GET requests sent to (explicit)proxies contain URL's and URL's can be 255 bytes or longer, then no, 32 bytes for a GET request can't be right. Hope that helps... :)
