Subject Re: Connecting to Database

>From the docs i have a feeling ATS cannot make any non-http request to any
host . Is that so ??? Which means ATS plugins have no chance of connecting
to databases directly....

INKNetConnect (contp,, 9999)

the above call is the only call i saw to make network requests but the fact
that it doesn't take any protocol means i assume it only uses HTTP protocol.

Please let me know if my understanding is wrong.
