OHS 12c: ProxyTimeout is not Working When Accessing a Forward Proxy of HTTPS Request (Doc ID 2443416.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 09, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


ProxyTimeout directive allows a user to specifiy a timeout on proxy requests.

When accessing a forward proxy of HTTPS request, the request will not end with the value specified by ProxyTimeout. This issue is not reproduced with forward proxy of HTTP request. ProxyTimeout directive is not effective with HTTPS request only.

The steps to reproduce are:



1. Prepare a simple sleep web application in WLS.

2. Add the following to httpd.conf of OHS.

But the request https://WLSIP:7002/sleep/sleep.jsp will sleep until the specified time ends.
