Hi there,

I've got a problem with mod_jk2 and Apache2 under FreeBSD and I think it is
a bug. I configured mod_jk2 for two Tomcat servers. If one of these machines
is down, mod_jk2 should send all requests to the server that kept running.
That is working, but sometimes the time for forwarding the request takes
about 75 seconds. I found out that this is the default connect timeout of
FreeBSD. The problem is, that I configured mod-jk2 the way, that it has its
own timeout for connecting (see attached But this
value is not recognized. If I decrease the default connect timeout for
FreeBSD (by /etc/sysctl.conf), mod_jk2 will use this value. 
So I think it is a bug, that mod_jk2 is not using its own timeout values.
Btw the mod_jk2 setup with timeout works fine on Linux.
