Pass through the accept-encoding http header


Dear Sir,

Rather than have the Kemp Load Master handle the compression associated with the 'accept-encoding' header, is it possible to simply pass this header direct to the real servers and let IIS take care of it?

Grateful for any advice relating to this as our web team are reluctant to allow me to enable compression with caching on the Load Master (because they cannot control the caching feature to the nth degree).

You should be able to simply disable any offloading of compression on the loadmaster under:

System Configuration ->  Miscellaneous Options -> AFE Configuration -> Compression Options


This should maintain the headers to the IIS
