I tried that, but it didn't seem to work. I compared ethereal captures
from an FC2 box that doesn't get through and an FC1 box that does.
Here are the apparent differences. Let us know if something looks
- FC2 does a DNS Standard Query AAAA before it's Standard Query A, then
also does a reverse PTR query after. FC1 only does the std A. Both end
up with the same IP though, so this shouldn't matter.
- During the first (and only) SYN;SYN,ACK;ACK sequence, FC2 asks for a
window scale of 7, FC1 asks for 0. They seem to settle around the same,
though at 5888 for FC2 and 5840 for FC1 on the GET / packet.
- In the GET / packet, there are only a couple diffs in the User-agent
and Accept lines. Here are the lines for reference:
> User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040116\r\n

- Both FC1 and FC2 get identical ACK packets for the GET / packet.
After that though, FC2 gets absolutely nothing. No more packets from
I only have a general knowledge of all this, but nothing stands out.
