Webgateway closes connection to LDAP directly after Searchrequest

I have a very strange effect on my webgateways (version


The webgateways get the uid of the user from a squid in front of the filter. This is working fine.

Now, the webgateways should check an openldap directory for group-memberships.

The extract of the uid (Authentication.RawUsername) works fine.


At this point the webgateway sends a LDAP-Searchrequest to the LDAP-Server, but often, and here is my problem, it closes the connection with a <FIN ACK> after the request directly.

The result is, that the LDAP didn't answer to the request and I have no group-memberships.


If I reload the requested website, sometimes the webgateway don't send the <FIN ACK> and the LDAP will answer with the correct values (the LDAP-Request is the same). After this point browsing works for some minutes.


Anybody has seen this before? I have no idea, what I can do.
