Recently the webserver was upgraded apache 1.3.29. Ever since I am having intermittent problems submitting post data via a web form. Displaying data works fine.

The browser says the "page can not be displayed". It also says a dns error at the bottom of the page.

I can ping the site quite fine. Any subsequent gets will work fine as well.

The research seem to indicate issues with a specific fix of the ie browser not able to handle keep alive settings well.

The browser recommendation is to turn of the keep alive or increase the time out on the keep alive.
