Add support for persistent SSL backend connections in mod_proxy
Last modified: 2009-05-20 06:57:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
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
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.
Thanks for the feedback.
