I am wondering if Telerik (or someone else) has any recommendations for Http Compression modules that work with ASP.NET AJAX & Telerik controls. I've tried a few (Blowery, mbCompression), and usually ran into issues when it came to AJAX usage. Unfortunately, I am running IIS6 for the foreseeable future so using IIS7's compression is not an option. Any suggestions for a module are greatly appreciated.

I should've stated that I am already using RadCompression. I am inquiring about an additional module as "RadCompression is not designed to be a complete replacement for other HTTP compression tools, such as the built-in HTTP Compression in IIS 7." I only wish RadCompression could "do it all".

Yes that would be ideal if I can they will enable it for me. In cases I couldn't get it enabled, I am just looking for alternatives that people gotten to work in the form of a HttpModule. That's what my question is asking.

Flanders.Library.Modules.HttpCompressworks fime, as it can be configured to support almost any situation..
I dont use RadCompression as it still crocks with SSL, SSL and compression is quite difficult, but the above handles most fine as one can add specific rules to handle the ones where IE crocks..
We use the internal AJAX WebResourceCompression module explictly to do the same thing as RadCompression , the Microsoft module actually works with SSL..
The above two modules do all that we need, application compression and resource.axd compression..
RadCompression has no rules to enable the work around for the standard ssl and/or compression issues most browsers have..
RadCompression defects were reported almost a year ago, and still have not been fixed at last test..
Hope this helps..

Ray, can you expand a little bit more on the issue with RadCompression and ssl? I'm curious as I'm using it on few of my projects without an issue. Also it seems that Telerik's demo site is working ok with ssl and RadCompression here a random link ->
