Subject RE: [users@httpd] Upstream Connection Persistency
Date Wed, 03 Jan 2007 22:10:16 GMT
What do you think I am missing here? The version that I built is also
2.2.3 and the OS is SCO 5.6.0. I built it statically. 

When I navigate to a website (internal) pointing the browser to my
proxy, I see the embedded static pages are taking up separate upstream
connections. However I expected them to share the same upstream

These do not affect the proxy connections, just the connections  
between Apache and the browser.

Working fine for me in 2.2.3.  In fact, it was working too fine, and  
I had to turn it off because a firewall between front-end and back- 
end was dropping long-lived TCP connections.
