#3486 closed Enhancement (fixed)

Add gzip compression support to RPC server

Description

We're currently using deflate() in zlib, but it appears that gzip format is more portable:

  1. http://www.zlib.net/zlib_faq.html#faq39 says, "Bottom line: use the gzip format for HTTP 1.1 encoding."
  1. Qt's QNetworkAccessManager class supports transparent decoding of the gzip format, but not of the deflate format. So, all RPC content being passed to the Qt remote control app is currently uncompressed.
