RFC6455, "The WebSocket Protocol", December 2011

Source of RFC: hybi (app)

Errata ID: 3227

Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Technical

Reported By: Alexey Melnikov

Section 7.4.1 says:

   1011

      1011 indicates that a server is terminating the connection because
      it encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from
      fulfilling the request.

It should say:

   1011

      1011 indicates that a remote endpoint is terminating the connection
      because it encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from
      fulfilling the request.

Notes:

As per the discussion in the WG (See <http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/hybi/current/msg09628.html>) the meaning of this error close code should be extended to cover clients as well. As the Designated Expert for the WebSocket close code registry I've approved the corresponding change to the IANA registry.

This should be "hold for update" for rfc6455bis.
