By 'impossible' I meant that it is impossible to *guarantee* that the proxy will disconnect in the way that Chris wants. In some cases it will, but it is certainly not required. Squid will hold on for a while until it has got all the headers, and will hold on indefinitely if it has nearly downloaded the whole response. _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
