IE11 HTTP Header - Keep-Alive ?

Postby woody on Sun Jul 03, 2016 2:32 am

Quick technical question...

I am testing with two browsers:

IE11
Chrome

Chrome works perfectly.

IE11 seems to want to CACHE several pages.

I have tried to disable Cache in IE11 settings.

I did notice this slight difference in CaSe for the Keep-Alive HTTP Header.

Would this make a difference of how MiServer 2.0 behaves?

Chrome has "keep-alive"
while IE has "Keep-Alive"

Update: I saw this KB article at Microsoft. Do Sockets play a part?

Thanks!

Hi Woodley,

The connection: keep-alive HTTP header has nothing to do with caching, it's just a way for the client to request that the connection be kept open so that subsequent requests can use the came connection, thereby improving throughput.
Currently MiServer doesn't do anything with keep-alive. But that wouldn't impact the behavior you're seeing.

Header names are case insensitive, but IE is notorious for not handling them correctly.
I couldn't find anything in the specification about case sensitivity in header field values.

Thanks, Brian!

That helps.

I'll keep digging within my code.

Cheers,
