Subject [users@httpd] questions on TCP connections and Sessions
Date Sun, 22 Feb 2009 19:23:41 GMT
Hello,  

   I am pretty confused about the TCP connections and sessions in the case of proxy server
in the middle.  Here is the case, 

               Browser -> SSL-Proxy Server -> SSL WebServer

there are two parts in this SSL communication, 
1.  Browser -> SSL-Proxy Server.  Browser sends a HTTPS request, SSL-Proxy server terminates
the SSL connection.
2. SSL-Proxy Server -> HTTPS WebServer.  SSL-Proxy server as a client re-encrypts the request,
sends it to backend HTTPS webServer.

How many sessions will be, one or two?  Can someone help?

Many Thanks, 
Q.Xie
