Subject Re: [users@httpd] Persistent proxied connections with Apache 2.4.x?

IMO there's no way to do it without enumerating all your backend hosts. Apache needs to create
a separate worker for each host at startup time.

Just in case you are actually looking at the headers, it should be "Connection: keep-alive"
in the obsolete HTTP 1.0, and they are all persistent by default in HTTP 1.1 unless "Connection:
close" is specified by any side. If SharePoint follows any standards, that is.

With Best Regards,
