PHP pages display in all Windows browsers and NO Linux browsers!

P: n/a
OS: Windows XP, Windows 2000
OS: Linux Red Hat Enterprise Level 3, Fedora Core 3

Browsers: Firefox 1.0, IE 6.1+, Mozilla, Konqueror

We are working on an internal website that is to be used as an
intranet. This page goes through an initial SSL layer after asking for
certificate acceptance, once you acccept the page should pull up.

And here is the problem: It pulls up under any browser within Windows;
it never pulls up under any browser within Linux. This includes
Firefox; it's fine in Windows/Firefox but locks up cold in
Linux/Firefox.

Anyone ever run into this and know what I might be able to do about
this?
Thanx
Phil

Is your security certificates from a trusted issuer? (and does the unix
browsers list it as a trusted issuer).

Also if its SSL, what level of encryption, do the unix machines support that
level?

1. The issue can be a design one.
is your page designed following the www.w3c.org recommendations??

2. maybe an SSL issue...can you post any relevant information found in
the apache error_log ????

One quick glance of an experienced eye allowed to understand the blurred

If that was the problem, the Firefox under Windows would also have
problems.

Are you using some sort of proxy with Windows integrated
authentication? If so, Windows OS could be authenticating against the
proxy in a transparent way for the user (and the browsers), whereas
Linux browsers could even not be able to iniatiate a conversation with
the proxy to try a more basic and/or standard authentication protocol.
