When pushing files over some 20MB, I get "abort: error: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host"

Smaller files works fine. I have added/changed the suggested sections in my web.config:

    Which settings specifically were you tweaking?

    Sorry, I was trying to add it to my original post. Here goes:

                                                maxQueryStringLength="8192" />
          <requestFiltering allowDoubleEscaping="true">
            <requestLimits maxQueryString="8192" maxAllowedContentLength="536870912" />

    That's beyond strange.

    Could you please push with the following command and attach the push-debug-log.txt here:

    hg push --debug > push-debug-log.txt

    Oh, it is HTTPS that you're using.

    There's a bug/problem in Python ( http://bugs.python.org/issue13885 ) and,
    as a consequence in Mercurial and TortoiseHG (
    http://bz.selenic.com/show_bug.cgi?id=3905 ,
    which results in this kind of behavior.

    There are really several options. You can either downgrade to Mercurial
    2.7.2, upgrade to Mercurial 2.8 or disable SSL altogether. Unfortunately,
    there's nothing I can do on my part.

    I’m experiencing the exact same with a fresh install of HgLab 1.0.1. Is that expected too?

    Unfortunately, yes. This is purely client-side issue and has nothing to do
    with HgLab itself.

    The Internets say that you can disable SSLv2 in IIS (
    http://forums.iis.net/t/1151822.aspx ) and this _might_ help.

    Disabling SSLv2 to no avail.

    When you mention downgrading Python, do you mean client-side?

    You don't need to downgrade Python per se (unless you're compiling
    Mercurial yourself); rather, you'll need to downgrade Mercurial itself.
    I've had reports of success with TortoiseHG 2.4.1 and Mercurial 2.2.2.

    Mercurial 2.0 is way too old. Could you please try with 2.8?

  12. 12 Posted by Vedeja Stefan on 27 Nov, 2013 10:51 AM

    I had 2.8 installed originally.

    That's unfortunate; apparently, this was not actually fixed in 2.8.

    Nevertheless, thanks a lot, Stefan!

    I'm experimenting this issue with TortoiseHg 3.1 and Python 2.7.6. This post is old and I would like to know if the problem is still present with current version of HgLab. If this bug is known as fixed. What is the solution for this issue.

    Thank you

    Hello, Geoffroy!

    Are you pushing over HTTPS?

    I think yes. I'm using this command

    hg push http://localhost/hglab/MyRepo

    Is it the best way to do things?
