Significant delay between Microsoft Office Protocol Discovery OPTIONS requests RRS feed

  • Question

  • When users in our network try to download MS Office document from server (Tomcat and HTTPD as a proxy) IE10 hangs for some time (from 10s to 1min) and then opens document. Previous versions of IE (6, 7, 8) work without any issues. We do have our server configured to return 405 for PROPFIND and OPTIONS requests. We see that browser hangs between OPTIONS requests in Wireshark. What may be the cause of such problems? Does IE10 has some properties to disable such requests? Can we set some header on back-end to clearly tell IE that our server is not WebDav service?
