  Sorry webmaster@peoplegauge.com ...

  The Apache server expects a robust implementation of the TCP/IP stack
  layer, and that is obviously not true of the McAfee product.  Microsoft
  makes it fairly trivial to write a stripped down TCP/IP provider or hook,
  but it is relatively difficult to design one to properly handle socket
  handle inheritence.  See the ancient issues of the Aventail connent VPN
  client... which didn't work properly for a very long time {if ever}.
  <http://httpd.apache.org/docs/misc/FAQ.html#WSADuplicateSocket>

  All we can advise is that you upgrade to a more robust firewall product
  or consider dealing with your firewall issues at your router or dedicated
  firewall box.

  Based on feedback, I'm closing this report and reclassing as an FAQ.
