Thanks Mark, the Proxy supports it but our Proxy team disables it and
prefers it not be enabled. I have been pushing to get KeepAlives enabled
and been met with some hesitation, I'm hoping with your answer I'll be
able to push them to either enable KeepAlives or remove the Reverse
Proxy requirement for this use case.
