RE: sslReadClient: FD 13: read failure: (232) Connection reset

Hmmm... but if I remove the proxy config from the customer's browser,
all works quite nicely. Something about accessing the SSL site via
Squid is wrong... like the remote server does not like something that
Squid does.

So, doesn't look as much like a client prob as a squid one. Any ideas
how I might attack debugging something like this?

Or, should I start testing 1.2beta? :-)

This basically means that the connection was dropped at the remote end
without closing it down properly. Usually it relates to a client that
crashes or is aborted in the middle of a dialogue with the server. I
see numerous instances of that message here, and nobody's complaining,
so I figure it can't be serious -- particularly when compared to stuff
people *do* complain about. ;-)

Harris, eh? Maybe you could talk Baseview Products into installing a
Squid server so my wife will have better web access at work... :-)
