Connection Interrupted or Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage


Your application uses the file control in your form. A user tries to upload a very large file. In Internet Explorer, they get:

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Check your Internet connection. Try visiting another website to make sure you are connected.

Retype the address.

Go back to the previous page.

More information

This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.

For offline users

You can still view subscribed feeds and some recently viewed webpages.
To view subscribed feeds

Click the Favorites Center button , click Feeds, and then click the feed you want to view.

To view recently visited webpages (might not work on all pages)

Click Tools , and then click Work Offline.
Click the Favorites Center button , click History, and then click the page you want to view.

In Firefox you get:

Connection Interrupted

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again.

These errors are not the real problem. The real problem is that in the server doc. Under Internet Protocols... tab, HTTP tab, HTTP Protocol Limits heading, Maximum size of request content field the number is set to low, most likely the default of 10000 kilobytes. This is the maximum allowable POST size, including all fields and file attachments.

File attachments are BASE64 encoded, which means every three bytes becomes four bytes. A 9mg file becomes 12mg which is now too large for you allowable POST size. Set the field to 0 for unlimited file sizes, larger for you maximum files size or if you have multiple file attachments, use a form in an iframe to upload your files one at a time to a temporary document. Once your form is submitted, copy the files to your document and delete the documents. Or you could make the file upload documents child documents of your form.
