I'm a beginner yet with network, and probably that question is stupid but i can't understand. It is possible a stream has more than one http requests? I have a stream with 8 http resquests and their responses. I have aditional information below conversation with 8 client pkts, 8 server pkts, 15 turns.

Can someone explain me that?

Kind regards

Assuming by stream you mean TCP stream, then yes, this is quiet normal. Simply because of efficiency, why would you want to tear down the TCP connection and setup a new one to put the next request in? That would be similar to calling someone, ask a question, hanging up and calling again for the next question. There's even a process called HTTP pipelining that puts all requests in before even waiting for an answer, although it's outlived its time I guess.

Hello! Thank your very much! Yes i'm refering TCP streams. Probably this happening because i tried to make a test of Sql Injection in work context and in this test i sent one request and server returns database errors and i change request and sent with some differences until obtain a "correct" response. Probably, on every error response, the connection is not closed and when i sent another request, the data going on same connection. That's it?
