Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45286] New: Listen / AcceptFilter interaction
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2008 10:46:48 GMT

           Summary: Listen / AcceptFilter interaction
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.8
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation

While dealing with basically the same problem as for, a lot of Googling and Source-reading
brought me to the following solution:

    AcceptFilter epp none
    Listen 700 epp


Now knowing the solution, I checked back to the official documentation for
these two directives, and found that

  does not somehow tell the reader how to set the protocol name for a socket.

  does not contain any information regarding a possible second parameter which
sets the protocol for this port.

* I haven't found any hints as to what a connection-handler should do (e.g.
call ap_set_server_protocol()?) to set the AcceptFilter or "protocol" field


What about adding to the "Listen" documentation something like

"Listen takes an optional second argument which sets the protocol name for this
connection. An 'AcceptFilter' statement can then be used to set policies for
this port"

and to the 'AcceptFilter', something like

"The default protocol names are https (for port 443) and http (for everything
else). To set the protocol of a specific port, use the second parameter of the
"Listen" directive.
