Topic save gives a "connection interrupted" error in Windows


The script tag embedded in a topic is causing problems. When a user wants to edit and save the topic, the browser is not able to save the data in Windows, There is no problem in linux operating systems.


I had installed twiki in linux using apache server .In some of the topics, I have used scripts and every thing is working fine in LINUX, In Windows Xp, I can edit the topic and save the topic , but i cannot save the topic for raw edit option. The IE 6.0 displays the following error:

The page could not be displayed 
The Mozilla firefox in windows displays the following error:

Connection Interrupted The Connection to the server was reset when the page was loaded The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection.Please try again

In the error logs I could find the following error:

I had posted the above problem in Support web. I did not get any support. Hence I decided to post it as a bug. Please fix the bug as soon as possible.

Running a TWiki on a Linux server and using Windows XP clients is probably what 90% of us do.

I have not seen such a problem before.

Based on the fact that the log says BaseUserMapping _666 (Guest) tells me that you have the authentication setup wrong.

You need to give much more feedback to get to the bottom of this.

Your complete LocalSite.cfg and your apache config would be good. Remove the passwords.

Kenneth, Sorry for the delay. Here by I am sending the LocalSite.cfg and apache config as attachments. I am expecting the bug to be fixed very soon. I has removed the DefaultUrlhost,WebMasterEmail,PROXY {HOST in the LocalSite.cfg.
