Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 29744] CONNECT does not work over existing SSL connection
Date Sun, 09 Nov 2008 21:20:34 GMT

--- Comment #76 from Stefan Fritsch <>  2008-11-09 13:20:33 PST ---
The current patch ("proxy_connect patch updated for 2.2.9") has the following
problem: If the client disconnects but the backend server continues to send
data fast, apache will continue to read the data and not abort the connection
to the backend (or only after a long time).

I think proxy_connect_transfer() should exit the loop and return an error if
c_o->aborted. And proxy_connect_handler() should forcibly close the backend
connection in this case and not call ap_lingering_close().

Another issue is that mod_status does not give useful output for the tunnel.
The child stays in R (reading request) state and the transferred data is not
counted in the Conn, Child, and Slot fields.

BTW, I also tested for memory leaks and couldn't find any: The process size did
not increase even after transfer of >20GB.
