OneConnect is a feature that reuses server-side connections. When WEBSSO is enabled, it always creates a new server-side connection, and doesn't reuse pooled connections.


Idle serverside connections that should be eligible for reuse by the virtual server are not used. This might lead to build-up of idle serverside connections, and may result in unexpected 'Inet port exhaustion' errors.


WEBSSO and OneConnect.



Fix Information

OneConnect now works when WEBSSO is enabled/configured, so that the system reuses the pooled server side connections.
