because each get only returns one response
you need to send 3 GET's, one for each resource required.

hi objects
thanks for the reply
arent we supposed to get 3 response with 1 get?
cuz its http 1.1? (multiply objects can be sent over single TCP connection between client and server)

plz clarify
no, that would require telnet to interpret the html and work out what else needed to requested. telnet know nothing about http.

my mistake
what if we use the browser sent one request ("GET http://www.abc.org http/1.1")
then according to the theory (multiply objects can be sent over single TCP connection between client and server) 1 request can get 3 response right?

thanks again for your help object
multiple GET requests would still need to bent (which could use the same tcp connection).
otherwise how would the server know what to return.

> 1 request can get 3 response right?
no, 1 request gets exactly one response
keep-alive connections just mean that the same connection can be used for multiple get requests

you can test with telnet by sending following header right after the GET line:


then telnet does not close the connection and you can type in the next request
