WebException: "The message length limit was exceeded"
WebException thrown by
HttpWebRequest.GetResponse() has the message
"The underlying connection was closed: The message length limit was exceeded."
HttpWebResponse only allows 64KB of HTTP headers; any more and
it will throw this exception.
To resolve the issue, set the MaximumResponseHeadersLength
property on the request to a larger value, or to
-1 for no limit. (Note that the value is
expressed in kilobytes, so the default value
64 allows 65,536 bytes of headers.)
