------- Additional Comments From olegk@apache.org  2003-05-25 14:43 -------
Bin,
I see things a bit differently here. It is not HttpClient that fails to work
with IBM Web Traffic Express Caching proxy on https, rather it is IBM Web
Traffic Express Caching proxy that fails to work properly. Sending 'connection:
close' header along with connection established response appears ... well... odd
to me. So, the bug report should have gone to the IBM folks in the very first
place. 

Nevertheless, HttpClient has been tweaked to ignore inappropriate 'connection'
directives in order to make it more robust when dealing with non-compliant proxy
servers.


The patch attached will also make HttpClient report a waring when an invalid
'connection: close' directive is encountered in 'connection established' response.

Oleg
