From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
When trying connect directly (without any proxy) to http://www.f5.com
connection "hangs", there is no data. Tried with several browsers and
telnet program.

uname -a
Linux lossi 2.6.8-1.521

[ossi@lossi ~]$ telnet www.f5.com 80
Connected to www.f5.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
GET / HTTP/1.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2, kernel-2.6.8-1.521

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. telnet www.f5.com 80
2. GET / HTTP/1.0 (press enter)
3. (press enter)

Actual Results:  Nothing. Connection is made, but then things stops.

Expected Results:  Get the data of "index page".

Additional info:

Everything seems to be working fine with kernel 2.6.6 and earlier.
Also 2.6.9 kernel seems to work fine.

fixed in latest errata kernel ?
Comment 2 Osmo Laitinen 2004-11-23 15:36:55 EST
Tested with latest kernel (2.6.9-1.6_FC2) and 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 and

Now all of those works ok in this situation.
The case was tested with a few other people (and with Debian using
2.6.8 kernel) and they had same problem.
Wonder what might have caused it...
