basically what is happening is just a port call to 80. If it is alive it will
respond with the appropriate escape characters. It's a great way to test
network connectivity at the port level by using telnet.
Unless he is actually on 443 as you mentioned it looks like the http server has
threaded out it's connections. If we are talking IE only it's probably a
session state issue.
Seeing this thread a while back I did a lil test using IE and Opera. If I were
the only one connected via https to my m0n0wall and ran a netstat, I saw 3 or 4
established sessions. With IE I hit refresh and it would increase by one or
two. Keep going and it would freeze when it hit the concurrent connection limit.
Opera didn't do that.
not knowing enough under the hood of mini_httpd is there a session state
variable that can be modded?
