The connection times out when you visit a webpage that redirects a POST request to an SSL-secured site in Internet Explorer 8
Consider the following scenario:
- You have a webpage that redirects a POST request to a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)-secured site.
- The SSL-secured site requires client certificates.
- You use Windows Internet Explorer 8 to open this webpage, and then select a client certificate.
In this scenario, Internet Explorer 8 does not send the client certificate data in the POST request. Therefore, the server does not receive the data and the connection times out.
