Are you saying without the keepalive or do you mean with the keepalive
option I would see the traffic below?

Thanks again,

Without keepalive, you should see the following traffic:
- Client (browser) opens connection to proxy server
- Proxy Server accepts connection
- Client (browser) sends request
- Proxy Server decides to proxy the request
- Proxy Server opens connection to backend as client
- Backend server accepts connection
- Proxy Server (client) sends request)
- Backend server generates response
- Backend server sends response
- Backend server closes connection
- Proxy server (client) closes connection to backend
- Proxy server sends response to client (browser)
- Proxy server closes connection to client (browser)
- Client (browser) closes connection

I am not network guy, but that's what I am used to seeing.
