Apache and M$ Internet Explorer seem to have a problem with not handling Persistant Connections correctly over https using http/1.1. If using a scripting language like PHP or ASP (chillisoft) on Apache you will sometimes get the "Page cannot be displayed" error on posts to other pages. This happens randomly and is a big pain in the ass to figure out. I finally found a fix for this on the cobalt-developers list. This line should go in your httpd.conf file in the section for your SSL virtual host.
The line you want is this: SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown downgrade-1.0 force-response-1.0
Keep it all on one line. Here is the full section from my Apache version 1.3 apache.conf file.
