#953 closed defect (invalid)

trac logs me out every hour or so

Reported by: hamish Owned by: sac@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: SysAdmin Keywords: trac



trac seems to forget who I am every hour or so. In earlier versions that would happen if you were logged into the https side and visited a http trac page, but that's not it this time.

It's sort of annoying to have to relog in when you hit the Preview button to submit to a bug. Luckily (at least in my browser) just the meta tags like Component and keywords are forgotten, the text of your comment is recoverable.

? thanks, Hamish

for the record, since others reported to me the same trouble in private mails: it turns out this was due to my university's proxy server; I guess the outgoing portal was switching the presented IP address during load balancing or otherwise invalidating the https session. Last week I added an exemption to not use the local proxy server for in my web browser and the problem has finally gone away. yay (it costs me a few cents more per MB, but luckily I've got that choice, our students don't. bandwidth ain't cheap on south pacific islands)
