Cold Fusion is in Java and connecting it to IIS is the sort of thing that would make it very complex to get anything across without reading up on what it's doing and how it works. At the time I used it, it was in C++ and it run natively with no extra tunneling involved and headers were simply natively present.

That's just a header. If you can, or must, access it by that name (not that you would, but just in terms of checking what's there), then that means the others are in their native and/or CamelCase form also.

You can't make it work by adding HTTP_ to them if you can access *any* of them without it. They're all going to be consistent.
