Introduced : BIG-IP_v9.0
This method is deprecated (immediately) and should no longer be used. Gets the states that specify how we handle the “Accept-Encoding:” header. If set to false, we will strip the “Accept-Encoding:” header before passing the request on to the server (so that the server doesn&apost also compress the response). If it is set to true, we will leave the “Accept-Encoding:” header in the request so that servers are able to do compression. We will not compress responses that have already been compressed.
