Article ID: 884537 - View products that this article applies to.
When you use classes in the System.Net namespace to upload a large file over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection in the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1, you may receive one or both of the following error messages:
System.Net.WebException, The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.
For example, an error may occur when you use the WebRequest.GetRequestStream method to return a stream to write a large file to an Internet resource.
System.Net.WebException, The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish secure channel for SSL/TLS with inner exception of System.IO.IOException, Unable to read data from the transport connection with an inner exception of System.ObjectDisposedException, Cannot access a disposed object named "System.Net.TlsStream
Note This problem may be hard to reproduce, because it depends on several factors. For example, this problem depends on network reliability and on computer speed. These exceptions occur when you are using NTLM authentication. However, these exceptions may also occur when you are using other authentication schemes.
