FIX: A Web client may receive a "page cannot be displayed" error message when you run SSL in kernel mode in Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1

Symptoms

When you run Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) in kernel mode in Microsoft Windows Server 2003, a Web client may receive a "page cannot be displayed" error message. This problem occurs when you use Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0. Additionally, an HTTP 400 (substatus 64) error message may be written to the IIS logs.

You may experience this problem when a Web client submits a form that has lots of data and uses a Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP) application or a Microsoft ASP.NET Web application that uses lots of View State data.

Workaround

To work around this problem, disable SSL kernel mode in Windows Server 2003 SP1 and later versions of Windows Server 2003.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2.

More Information

In Windows Server 2003 SP1 and in later versions of Windows Server 2003, you can run SSL in kernel mode instead of default user mode. Kernel mode means that components or processes run in the core address space of the operating system.

Running SSL in kernel mode improves SSL performance because encryption and decryption operations are moved to the kernel. This change reduces the number of transitions between kernel mode and user mode.
