My company has to provide support to a piece of equipment that closes the connection on every request.
The problem is that in the most critical workflow, it needs to make 2 requests. The consequence is a very long wait between the two requests establishing SSL connection. The problem is even worse when GPRS is used.
I was wondering whether there is any way to prevent connection interruption. By looking at wireshark dump, it feels like if I could ignore FIN, the connection would remain open. Does that make any sense?
What are my options?
