    SSO fails on compressed response

    sachin mishra Newbie

      I am using Jboss 4.2.3 with jboss portal 2.7.2

      Running 2 jboss nodes in a cluster, everything works as expected including SSO , session replication etc.

      Onces i enable compression on the Tomcat Http connector or even on our load balancer , SSO no loger works.

      Scenario ( with compression="on" on tomcat connector )
      1. start both server nodes
      2. run web page that requires authentication
      3. user authenticated by node 1 ( SSO replicated to the node2 correctly)
      3. shut down node 1 ( this was the node that originally authenticated the user)
      4. run the page again, node 2 pops up authentication dialog
      (only the authentication part is having problems when compression is on, every other session object associated with the page seems to work as after re-entrying authentication details, i do see the updated session values that i was expecting.)

      Is there anything special needs to be done so that SSO works properly when running compression="on" in tomcat.

      Thanks in advance.
