Subject RE: Apache proxy engineering specs
Date Mon, 10 Sep 2007 14:57:33 GMT

So if a proxy connect is used it then creates a stateful connection from
client through proxy to server and get the ACK back from the
backend/server and not the proxy?


We can start by simply asking do apachie proxies in their standard setup
or install send ACK back to requesting client or does it just pass that
information (request) to the server and the client receives ACK from
server and NOT the proxy?

Thank you,

It might help to clarify right off that RFC 2616 defines HTTP/1.1 and
as stateless protocols.

So the answer is no, any aggregation is an illusion.  For stateful
connections it is necessary to use proxy CONNECT method from the client
to the back end.
