    Has anyone seen an issue with 79XX models IP phones randomly refusing
    connections?  Any documentation regarding this?

    The phones do have a limited number of connections available for HTTP.  These are recycled via normal time_wait mechanisms (the phone always requests 'Connection: close',) but if rapid HTTP GET or HTTP POST requests are made, the phone can exhaust the connection pool and start to reject connections or be unable to make additional requests - until a connection is freed.  If your scenario involves rapid/prolonged requests, this is likely to impact you.
