Description Ray Van Dolson 2008-05-21 18:30:48 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up Apache + mod_proxy in front of OWA2K7
2. Configure for end to end communication to be via SSL (client -> proxy and
proxy -> IIS).
3. Attempt to access externally from clients that require persistent connections
(Palm Treos)
Actual results:
Connection hangs.

Expected results:
Connection succeeds.

Additional info:
After initial OPTIONS request, connection is broken due to Apache inserting a
Connection: Close header.  When no proxy is used, the connection should be kept

This revision:


In the Apache 2.2.x branch appears to fix the issue (in the process of testing).
 I would *love* to see this backported to RHEL 5.x's Apache 2.2.3 tree.

I am testing a home-rolled patch and can file an RFE and also can attach
tcpdumps with and without Apache in the mix.

Are you still seeing problems with the httpd package as of RHEL 5.3?

I ended up switching to an EL5 build of Fedora's Apache.  I no longer could provide you adequate information to further troubleshoot the issue above, so I'd say go ahead and close this out.
