“The server closed the connection without sending any data”

I have a user that can log into our web app, but a certain page refuses to load.

It doesn't matter whether they use chrome or IE, both fail.

IE = Page cannot be displayed
Chrome = The server closed the connection without sending any data

I have logged in as this user on my machine and everything works fine in IE, Chrome and FireFox.

So what is wrong with this users machine?

Look for a blocking proxy or firewall between the browser and server. The FW could be on the client PC.

You could also get him/her FireFox and install "Live HTTP Headers". That will show detail of the full interaction between browser and server. It can be a lot to sift through, but it will usually point you to what's wrong.


There are other tools that do the same, this is just the one I use.
