Subject: [Moderator Action] Re: problem with post request on persistent
connections




I'm seeing the same problem that was posted earlier by
Mark Horsthuis:
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-lib/2000AprJun/0126.html>.

"the headers of the POST
request are written to the socket that is already
closed by the server
before this socket is closed by lib-www. After this a
new connection to the
webserver is made but only the headers of the POST
request are send via this
connection.  The webserver keeps waiting for the body
of the POST request
and after a while it times out."

I'm doing multiple consecutive POSTs via https. 
Also, I noticed that just before it hangs, it makes a
call to SSL_read, gets SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ, and then
blocks forever.. until a libwww timeout I think.

Any solutions or suggestions to get around this
problem ?

Thanks,
Priya.
