SPECweb99_SSL Result

 Hewlett-Packard : HP Integrity server rx7620        ||     NC    SPECweb99_SSL
 Zeus Technology Limited : Zeus 4.3r2                ||        

      SPEC has determined that this result was not in compliance with the
      SPECweb99_SSL run and reporting rules. Specifically, the result did
      not meet the 3 month availability requirement in the SPECweb99_SSL
      run rules due to a change in availability of a dependency of the
      web server.
