apach3 and mod_ssl sending close_notify and getting XMLHTTP on IE out of sync
In my environment a reverse proxy using apache (and mod_ssl) secures
the frontend server.
The problem arises when using OWA and checking names in the mail being
sent. IE uses XMLHTTP to make asynchronious lookups of the username to
the backend resulting in a POST through the SSL channel.
Before the problem arises, mod_ssl sends an SSL alert (close_notify)
to the browser and closes the connection. When the users checks the
names in OWA now, the XMLHTTP still tries to send through the
previously closed SSL channel, to no avail of course.
Is there a possibility to stop mod_ssl from closing the SSL channel or
can anybody point me into the right direction.
PS: I have traces if needed (snoop and ssldump)
