Don't think so... HTTP is an application that sits on top of TCP/IP. So
the session is established at the TCP/IP layer and the server is ready
to pipe any incoming data to apache. But, at this point, apache is
unaware of the connection so cannot log it or anything. Only when the
client sends a request (is that what you mean by "data"?) does apache
realise there is anybody there.
