HTTP 1.1 and Connection: Close

January 14, 2018

My servers have had what i call protocol problems with 0 length transmissions and connections not closing. I was reading HTTP Made Really Easy – A Practical Guide to Writing Clients and Servers and noting that my the http requests I receive these days do seem to contain the header “Connection: keep-alive”. I wonder if this is what keeps connections from closing gracefully. Apparently if i don’t want to support persistent connections i need to include “Connection: close” in my response – I’ll try that!

UPDATE: And Nope

I see exactly the same phenomenon
