Apache configured as the forward proxy , users connects to Internet Via Forward Proxy

Issue

Apache continues file download even though user terminates the download request.

We have an Apache configured as forward proxy and users connect to internet via this proxy. If a user while browsing initiates a http file download , the download starts as usual.

If for some reason users terminates the download at his end , The download stops. However the download connection at proxy server still continues and it still maintains the download session until download is finished. This results in continues occupation of  Internet bandwidth although the users has terminated his download. This be apache is configured on RHEL Lunix 3.0 ES and all apache versions (httpd 2.0.48, 2.0.50 and 2.2.0.)
)

Why does proxy still continue this download?

How exactly configured your Proxy? Post relevand lines from config here. Are you using some other caching proxy, like squid together with http forwarding that proxy?

Also please check CacheForceCompletion directive in apache. Read here: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_proxy.html#cacheforcecompletion

To disable caching at all use:
NoCache *

This is a known bug with a patch available, but it should be fixed since 2.0.53. See http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=32443
