Unexpected reset upon big requests when ip is whitelisted


The request is answered with a reset.


The request exceeds max buffer size violation is turned on. The source IP is set to never block.


A workaround is to turn on session tracking on the same policy. You may turn off all the other properties for the session tracking (so it won't do anything).

Fix Information

Added more scenarios where unblock can't actually happen and the long request will be enforced only in the headers.
