Subscribe

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a request is sent to a backend, the response triggers
    DataPower's backend timeout due to the response containing
    transfer encoding or other certain headers as part of the
    connection header.
    

Local fix

  • A possible workaround is to use HTTP/1.0 on the backend.
    

Problem summary

  • Affected is processing of HTTP responses with ?Connection?
    header.
    
    HTTP servers that put the transfer encoding or other certain
    headers in a Connection header might result in errors decoding
    the response data among other effects.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
