HTTP 426 status code means a server doesn’t want to accept the current protocol and wants the client to switch to a different (incompatible) protocol or a newer version of the same protocol (for example, HTTP/1.1 -> HTTP/2 or HTTP/2 -> WebSockets).
The server should respond with the
Upgrade header indicating the protocol they are willing to accept.
Connection: Upgrade Upgrade: websocket
A server might return
426 Upgrade Required when the WebSocket handshake fails due to the incorrect protocol version (presented in the
Sec-WebSocket-Version HTTP header).
Typically, a WebSocket server will respond with supported versions of the protocol:
Sec-WebSocket-Version: 13, 8, 7
