Subject Re: [users@httpd] apache hangs when getting pages from win2k
Date Wed, 29 Oct 2003 13:49:55 GMT
I'm not too keen on Win32 Apache, but is there an option in there where
it tries to do reverse lookups of clients, or domain resolutions of
clients?  It's very difficult *cough* to do a resolution of or
something like that... hunt for that option and turn it off, if such a
beast exists.

version 2.0.44).

I think perhaps there's something not setup right in "Internet Options", perhaps security
levels or WINS? I don't know much about those so it's hard to know what to look for. Thanks
