Keepalive Settings and SSL and IE - Puzzling
First things first,
- RHE Linux ES 4
- Lite Speed Std 2.1.14
- PHP LSAPI 4.4.2
When keepalive is set to 0, in both server and vhost onfiguration, it looks like litespeed still uses keep alive. I have tried to set keepalive timout to zero but when the server is started, it automatically changes it to 15 secs.
The whole thing became a problem when we tried to upload some files through ssl using IE. No matter what you set the keepalive settings to, the server closes connection from the client sending the file at the end of keepalive timout seconds.
We have tried to use apache's famous setenvif commant to make sure that keepalive is not used and the protocol is downgraded to HTTP1.0 to make it work :
SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" \
nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown \
It looks like it does not work. With some of our users, the server keeps timouting the connections after the keepalive timeout is reached.
Is there a workaround for this problem?
PS: The problem is not consiistent, i.e. the same version of ie could work from one network and it could have the problem mentioned above on another network (Everything is the same on the server side)
