When I do an HTTP get on a URL that doesn’t exist using NET:HTTP, the
read_timeout value is ignored and the connection stays open forever.
I read somewhere that this is a known bug (Bug #949) but I was trying to
do a work around to close the connection.
I tried using http.finish as is shown in the Class description but this
won’t force the connection closed.
Can anyone help me out with a way to force an NET::HTTP connection
thanks in advance
