Subject Re: TCP socket wothout HTTP protocol

[sorry mail has been sent too quick]

Another not desired behavior related :

The ap_hook_process_connection is not called until client stops. In the client, got this code

int main(int argc, char const *argv[])
int sockfd, connfd;
struct sockaddr_in servaddr, cli;

sockfd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
if (sockfd == -1) {
printf("socket creation failed...\n");
printf("Socket successfully created..\n");
bzero(&servaddr, sizeof(servaddr));

servaddr.sin_family = AF_INET;
servaddr.sin_addr.s_addr = inet_addr("");
servaddr.sin_port = htons(90);

if (connect(sockfd, (const sockaddr*)&servaddr, sizeof(servaddr)) != 0) {
printf("connection with the server failed...\n");
printf("connected to the server..\n");


In apache, the ap_hook_process_connection is not called until content is sent on socket, ap_hook_pre_connection
and ap_hook_create_connection are called only after 10 seconds in this case. I would like
to have a hook called when the connection is established.
Any (other hooks) way to do that ?

Hey Eric just a feedback to confirm that it just works as expected.
Thanks again !

Client from

Apache module :
int socket_process_connection(conn_rec *req) {
printf(« Conn init\n");
apr_socket_t *asock = ap_get_conn_socket(req);
int fd = 0;
apr_os_sock_get(&fd, asock);
char buffer[1024] = {0};
int valread = read(fd , buffer, 1024);
printf("%s\n", buffer);
return 0;

// Apache callback to register our hooks
void register_hooks(apr_pool_t* pool) {
static const char* const mod_ssl_reqtimeout[] = {"mod_ssl.c", "mod_reqtimeout.c", NULL};
ap_hook_process_connection(socket_process_connection, NULL, mod_ssl_reqtimeout, APR_HOOK_REALLY_FIRST);

For some reasons, I would like to read natively TCP socket in an Apache module. The request
is not encapsulated in HTTP protocol end the client send raw data.
I have already an apache module that manage standard HTTP request and I would like to mutualise
the code.

The test suite has "weird" modules that are not HTTP that you might
have a look at

./c-modules/nntp_like/mod_nntp_like.c is what I was thinking of. Just
from seeing it scroll by.

There is also mod_ftp:
