squid https denied


Hello all.

I am trying to use squid to access https://www.njmmis.com/login.aspx.

Here's the problem:

I get a web page from IE that states "You are not connected to the internet / The web site is encountering problems / There might be a typing error in the address".

Get this though.

If I connect to the web page WITHOUT using squid I have no problem. Then, if I enable squid, the problem connecting goes away.

I can't open up our firewall for 500 users to get to this site. Is there anything that you can think of that could cause this? All HTTPS to any other site works just fine. For example https://www.gmail.com has no problems.

Also, there is NO problem connecting via firefox. We only have the above behaviour with IE. Ideas?

The problem seems to be related to the handling of the "Accept-Encoding" header sent from the browser.

There are two things you might try:

1. Add the following to the squid server's config:

acl <website name> dstdomain <website name>
header_access Accept-Encoding deny <website name>

2. You can also try to remove the tick from "Use HTTP1.1 through proxy connections" in IE's Advanced internet options tab, although this might break some other web pages.

IE7 isn't the greatest browser in the world. The only things I ever hear of people having to 'work around', are from folks trying to make IE work. Funny how Firefox, Opera, etc., never seem to suffer from alot of those same issues.
