Issue:
We're running a Web Agent, and when user tries to reach the page :

  https://test.test.com/siteminderagent/forms/login.fcc/test

with OPTIONS as browser action, then the browser recieves return
code 500.

How can we fix this ?
Cause:
We see in the Web Agent traces that the method isn't supported yet.
