are there any tricks to getting httpconnections to close?

I've got a recurring problem with max connections open. This is not entirely unexpected given some coding

and implementation issues, but I don't seem to be able to kill all the connections and immediately get a new one.

While it is quite likely I'm forgetting to include some connections in my list, it is also possible I'm simply not

closing them the right way. Anyone have a link on issues here? I'm trying to turn off keep-alive in the request headers,

closing the connection itself as well as open streams, and appending ";deviceside=true" to everything.

Re: are there any tricks to getting httpconnections to close?

This turned out to be a bug in my text editor - I have reported the problem and expect immediate resolution

[ LOL - sorry, I've been listening to politics all day . I got two lines out of order and closed the wrong

stream. Works fine now. ]
