Most web browsers create a limited number of persistent TCP connections when requesting data, which restricts the amount of content a client can receive at one time. You can provide faster data downloads to your clients using the WebAccelerator™ system’s MultiConnect feature.
When enabled, the MultiConnect feature modifies embedded URLs with unique subdomains, prompting the browser to open more persistent TCP connections (up to two per subdomain generated by the WebAccelerator system). The origin web servers never get a request from these additional subdomains; they are used exclusively on embedded URLs or links that request images or scripts and are only for requests and/or responses between the client and the WebAccelerator system. If the WebAccelerator system needs to send a request to the origin server, it removes the subdomain prefixes before sending the request.
Perform these tasks to establish additional TCP connections with MultiConnect.
