I recently configured our Jira installation to run with an apache reverse proxy.
A DNS alias points to this proxy machine and the proxy then redirects to the real machine.
This works great for every user no matter what browser they use except for people using Windows XP. For them their client takes a very long to get each element of the page and it often times out without getting anything.
I have read:
and implemented that but it does not really help as connections simply take way too long to connect and they time out on Windows XP. On other systems (Ubuntu, Windows 7, Mac OS) pages return quickly and there is no problem. I have also discounted network issues through testing different configurations.
The main parts of my httpd.conf are as follows (addresses and ip addresses are not real and I will tighten things up security-wise once I get this working)
Any ideas as to why the Windows XP clients are getting stuck?
Any suggestions much appreciated.
