Does anyone know how on earth can https be about 4 times faster than http on a web site?
This happens from the Internet and from other PCs on the same network, but is seems to be the same from the web server itself.
I'm using dsl and have a 4 port router and Dynamic NATP has to be enabled for the router to work at all. I guess it could be something to do with DNS. I have DNS Proxy enabled and DNS disabled on the router.
Thanks a million.

The problem is that http is slower than https....so something is wrong with http.
I forgot to add: I'm using windows XP SP2 and IIS 5.1 as a web server.

Do you have firewall on your machine?

1. How do you measure the speed?
2. Are you suffering the same problem when accessing other HTTPS sites?
3. Have you tried visiting some static pages or contents, like .HTML or .zip? If the static pages suffer the problem also, the problem is unrelated to ASP.Net, it should be on IIS or networking.
Please try accessing .HTML using HTTPS, I think this can help you narrow down the issue.

Wow! After reading your post, it seems so obvious to test things in such a logical way. But I would probably never have thought of doing it myself.
First your questions:
Thank you Zhao, I would have been nowhere without your help.

OK, it doesn't seem to be the web.config:

Thanks for the update. Although the root cause is not found yet. It does help me understanding the problem better.
As you mentioned earlier it looks like low level protocol issue. Please try
Network Monitor. It allows you to capture the network traffic, view and analyze it. Please capture network traffic both on client side and server side and save it. However it might take a while to analyze it.

I managed to record a .cap file. I'm loading an html page from another Windows XP pc on the LAN. It's about 3 seconds long. Webserver: 10.0.0.3 , User PC: 10.0.0.4
How can I send the file to you? I received a private message from you, but when replying, I cannot attach the file.
(I'm thinking now...maybe I can just make a link to the file for you to download).
