HTTP::respond does not fire when custom error message is configured in http explicit proxy config.


The custom error message configured in the explicit proxy config is not relayed back to client and the actual response from backend server is repeated.


1. In http explicit proxy config, configure custom error message using 'HTTP::respond'. 2. Setup virtual server with backend server which sends a reset when connected. It can also be another BIG-IP with iRule. 3. From a client, try to access the backend server. 4. Server sends a reset.
