We have a rather strange issue. We use client applications that connect to our website (via ssl) where the application verifies is the customer has a valid password etc.

Basically, the client application, when it's launched, checks a very simple page on our server. Some versions of the client apps are running on Java. After server update a few days ago, some of those users can no longer connect via the app. These packages were updated:

Is it possible apache is blocking access perhaps if it is sees the user-agent is an old java version or something like that? No useful info in any error log though.

Hi Tomas,

I'd use a packet tracer (e.g. tcpdump or wireshark) from either side to debug the communication - this may shed some light on the issue if no logs are available.

Thanks, testing that right now with our programmer. I do see some packets during the connection attempt and kernel does not seem to be blocking though. So so far not much new info...
