Which version of haproxy do you use?
haproxy -vv

How does your config looks like?

Afaik, from haproxy point of view is urlp only usable for requests.


I can't remember how the response looks like from the server but some servers
have the option to send cookie AND url parameters and the browser decides which
he uses.

Please can you run haproxy -d and show us the response from the server.
