408 Request Timeout

HTTP 408 status code means a server has decided to close the connection after waiting for too long to receive the data from the client.

Once a server establishes a TCP connection, it waits for a client to send the data. If the client hasn’t sent the data in the alloted time window (timeout), server closes the connection by sending a Connection header with a close value.

Connection: close
