Description Keith McNeill 2004-01-29 21:24:07 EST
Description of problem:

I installed the linux 2.6 kernel from http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/
 on top of Fedora Core 1.  It seems to work fine except for certain
SSL connections within browsers.  I've tried Opera and Mozilla 1.6 and
can duplicate the problem.  If I go to webexpress.fidelity.com or
www.vanguard.com the browser just hangs.  I assume it is some sort of
problem with SSL because these URLs redirect you to a https site. 
Inerestingly if I go to https://www.microsoft.com things seem to work
ok.  If I do this in the Linux 2.4 fedora core kernel it all works
fine.  Fails with both the SMP and non-SMP kernel.

Machine is a Dell Inspiron 5150 with a 3.2 ghz P4 w/HT

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora core 1 with kernel-2.6.1-1.149.i686.rpm from
http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/ dated 1/27/04

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot linux 2.6
2. open mozilla
3. put in webexpress.fidelity.com
Actual results:
browser hangs...never see the login screen

Expected results:
see Fidelity login screen.

does it work if you disable ECN ? (echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn)

If not, is this still occuring in the current kernel ?
