HTTPS long load times/timeout
Posted on 2003-02-24
I have an issue with shutdown of windows 2000 where it takes one minute where it just sits at the waiting to shutdown screen - there is a TSB but it is not yet installed to fix it.
But I noticed another problem I cannot use several HTTPS sites on eBAY, my webhost provider, etc. All HTTPS page take 1-3 minutes to load on my fully updated windows 2000 machine running Sygate Firewall 5.1(although it was terminated before accessing the web), IE5.0, 5.1, 6.0 several 128bit and standard encryption, client machine, works fine before MS auto install updates 'service'.
Is there a monitor or shutdown of service/task to help release HTTPS communication? Any advice? I know this is a service pack or sygate issue (8 reinstalls trying to pinpoint the culprit) virtually stock machines.
