Unable to maintain keep alive connection while using burp suite
Hi, I am trying to test a webapp for vulnerabilities. I am using keep alive connections for my app's functioning, it works fine when i am not using burp as a proxy. But i am unable to maintain keep alive connections when using burp. Plese suggest any way to maintain a keep alive connection using burp.
Hi Jatin, inside Proxy > Options > Miscellaneous, do you have ‘Set ’Connection Close’ on incoming requests’ enabled?
Burp Suite is set by default to automatically close connections as this can often have performance benefits.
Hi Jatin, I have just spoken to our Burp Suite development team. Burp Suite will automatically close connections when proxying traffic as it provides significant performance and reliability benefits.
The setting I referred to previously will stop Burp from injecting a ‘Connection: close’ header when proxying traffic which can help in certain scenarios, however, it doesn’t prevent it from closing the connection.
