Include a section on HTTP/1.0, keep-alive and proxy[edit]

There is no description of issues surrounding HTTP/1.0, keep-alive and proxy... Would be a good idea to introduce a section on this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:57, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Can't get wikipedia to work[edit]

Keep getting "Proxy -- connection keep alive" inserted into text of article or discussion below where I was trying to edit.

When I make an edit, I get thrown to a page that says, basically that the edit failed.

Then I go back to the edit, click link at the top for "article" or "discussion," and my edit has been made after all.

And, I can never see the "Captcha" text.

I normally use FireFox on a Mac with OS X and NoScript (to protect against click-jacking, etc.) and the Little Snitch firewall and Apple firewall enabled,


How does this affect ports on the server and client? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:35, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Why isn't there an entry about the HTTP protocol for this feature? Connection: Keep-Alive —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:44, 7 October 2009 (UTC)


All the others are talked about here, so I thought I would ask: could someone add in details on how Chrome handles persistent connections please? (talk) 23:47, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

bad diagram[edit]

I think the timeline diagram in the section 'Use in web browsers' doensn't show what connection persistency is all about: Reducing the number of TCP communication cycles. The 'open' and 'close' events should be shown with visible handshake communication. This would clarify the benefits expected with connection persistency. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:23, 23 December 2011 (UTC)


What exactly needs to be clarified about sending and receiving multiple requests and responses over a single TCP connection? -- (talk) 04:28, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on HTTP persistent connection. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
