SSL? not working with Linux 2.6 from http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:04:25 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
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot linux 2.6
2. open mozilla
3. put in webexpress.fidelity.com
browser hangs...never see the login screen
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 ?
no longer a problem
