Ssl, rt, and IE

here’s a problem I had, and how to fix it. We server rt over HTTPS only
here, and there was a problem with IE not bothering to look at the
server sporadically. It turned out to be an IE bug made visible by
openSSL. Here’s the fix

add this to your server config (it’s inside my
<VirtualHost 10.110.xx.xx:443>

SetEnvIf User-Agent “.MSIE.” nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown

hope that’s usefule to someone.

would ever have practical significance.
“One day, sir, you will tax it,” was the answer.
