Subject [users@httpd] Is nokeepalive, force-response-1.0 still necessary for ie ?
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2008 04:10:50 GMT


The default Apache httpd.conf  (all versions e.g 2.2.x, 1.3.20+) has the
following line

SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown
downgrade-1.0 force-response-1.0

This is documented at

Is this still necessary when all your users have at least MSIE version 6
(also 7)?
When would one observe a related problem?
How do you test this ?

I have removed this line and I do not observe any errors while doing a 100
rapid refreshes.
