Rt-3.0.8, unable to open attachements

Since upgrading to 3.0.8, I’m no unable to open any attachments in any
ticket. New attachments fail as well. This problem only appears to happen
with IE. Firebird has no problems with it.

Hopefully this is not by design.

Any clues?

How does it fail? What’s the RT server sending back to you? Are you sure
it’s not downloading the attachments?

Hopefully this is not by design.

Certainly not.

Any clues?

Ok. in share/html/SetupSessionCookie, there are two lines sending “Cache
control” headers. Blow them away. Tell me if that works.

And to complicate things, this doesn’t work on the production server but
does work on my test box.

Now I have no idea how to debug this.From: “Jesse Vincent” jesse@bestpractical.com

Yes, that fixed it.

Good, but damn it. IE’s looking at headers designed to stop intermediate
caches from storing RT’s pages. It’s just not supposed to do that.

You might find this helpful:

http://cvs.sf.net/viewcvs.py/squirrelmail/squirrelmail/doc/ie_ssl.txt?rev=1.2

This will let you tune Apache to talk to IE very slowly using small
words so it can understand better. Apparently, this is a well-known bug
in IE (that MS considers a feature, of course).

No :slight_smile: I own all the pieces between me and the box running RT… no cache in
the middle, unless google’s toolbar is “helping” me.
