 Subject:  Re: Severe Problem with 1.2b1 HTTPS support
 Date:  Tue, 19 Oct 2004 17:25:08 +0200
Hi

I'm evaluating a "stock" 1.2b1 and encounter the same dying https 
problem. The way the client talks to portal may be the way to 
investigate : almost 100% of my IE6 connecting cause the portal https 
server to die. Mozilla seems more friendly with it. Just before the 
death of the server, we can observe a lot of connections on TCP/8001 :

Here is a log on my m0n0wall (10.9.0.255) with a connection of the 
client (10.9.10.254) authenticating with https :
netstat -an

Just after that the mini_httd was dead.
