Subject Re: windows 2K + IIS 5.0 + cgi program + HTTP connection Keep Alive doesn't work
Date Thu, 24 May 2001 13:21:57 GMT
Hi, Scott

Sorry to bother you again.

I've runned more tests, and found that for *.html files connection is kept
alive, while for
cgi program, it always close connection. Even when I just change my cgi
program name
with .html extension, connection becomes alive though the displayed content
is in a mess.

I've tried a simple html file and a cgi program which just produce the same
html file.
The *.html file works fine(I mean connection keeps alive) while not the cgi

Also I found that in the HTTP GET header by Inetnet Explorer there is one:
If-None-Match: some random value here, and in the reply by IIS there is a
ETag: same value as in If-None-Match.  Are such headers defined in HTTP 1.0
or 1.1?
Related to connection problem?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry for the late reply.  Can you post this question on the newsgroup?

how I spend my time and posting this to the newsgroup allows us to do
But see if helps you
at all.

Hi, Scott

I found your email address from the IIS Newsgroup.
Sorry to bother you, but I really need some help soon.

I just begin to use windows 2k Server and IIS 5.0 for my cgi program.
The problem is that the  HTTP connection Keep Alive is ON(by default),
and the POST request to my cgi program also ask for Connection:
but IIS always close the connection after sending reply to each request.
no error at all, and even data is sent back though it's expired to

How can I make HTTP 1.1 persistent connection work with IIS 5.0 on
2000 Server?  In fact, I have same problem with IIS 4.0 on NT 4.0

Thank you very very much for your kind help!
