I cannot see how this can be a problem? Having the same configuration, the only difference is that with httpGate you would get "connection error" while with httpGate0 you would get "not found" error. Everything works the same otherwise. > Your approach is viable in general, though we have the "void" > solution in 'httpGate' (described in my previous mail) in common use > now. comparing the two approaches: 1) httpGate solution either gets "connection error" or displays a static file/page. 2) httpGate0 solution either gets "not found" error or does *anything* the default gate server is programmed to do, e.g. gets "not found" error, redirects or displays a dynamically generated page (or gets "connection error" if the default gate server is not running). Also, httpGate0 solution seems simpler to me in terms of C code and overall logic. > If 'httpGate' fails to connect to the local server, an arbitrary > page can be triggered. > you see that it tries to open a file named "void". The page can be arbitrary but static. That means that if I have more web applications, the only thing I can display is that the session expired but I cannot show a link or redirect to the original application. > This "void" is usually a symbolic link to some page.

I find this is not user friendly at all as the user have to navigate to the original application himself manually but it should be done by the computer. > In other cases this page contains a link to the main application (if > there is any) telling the user to click that link, otherwise it > automatically redirects the user to that application after 10 > seconds or so. But how does it know which application when there are more than one? Thank you, Tomas -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:picol...@software-lab.de?subject=unsubscribe
