Hi, 

I have a question about the HTTP protocol.

Is it possible that an HTTP entry can have more then one connection at once?

Since the HTTP protocol is connectionless, it could have more then 
one connection. All HTTP transports make use of the same underlying 
TCP-connection port. Therefore, I should say it is not possible.

Is this correct?

Thanks by advance,
Harrie                                            |~,
