Hello I am looking for some assistance regarding the use of HttpCli over a wireless LAN.
I started using ICS recently from C++ Builder (5 Professional) as a more reliable alternative to the Netmasters components - in particular I used HttpCli successfully on a single computer connected to the internet. Last week I setup a home wireless network using a linksys access point to share my broadband connection - everything works OK and I have internet access and file sharing for all computers. I have since discovered that my program built using HttpCli does not work anymore, if run on any of the wirelessly connected computers, but works fine on my main PC (PC1) which is wired directly to the router. Home Network Setup : Linksys Router/Access Point/broadband connection - 192.168.1.1 PC1 - wired connection to router - 192.168.1.100 PC2 - wireless connection to router - 192.168.1.101 PC3 ... .102 etc All the PCs run Windows XP SP2 with full updates, and the networking equipment is all from Linksys (router is a WAG200G). When run on any PC > PC1 Httpprot.pas throws an exception when attempting to do a Get() - it returns a 400 with error message "cannot resolve IP address". I have run the "httptst" sample program supplied with ICS and I get the same error. To fix the problem I have tried changing various properties of the HttpCli, e.g. setting the routers address as proxy,username/password, but without any luck. I looked for some differences between the computers setups - all Ifound was that the wired computer PC1 had "no proxy" in its browserconnection settings, while PC2 has "automatically detect proxy settings". I have *not* tried changing any settings on the router itself, as to be frank, I am not very knowledgeable of it, and it seems to be working OK, apart from this. I have been checking the archives and while there are some similar queries, none quite seems to have the answer I need - e.g. http://lists.elists.org/pipermail/twsocket/2001-December/012228.html http://lists.elists.org/pipermail/twsocket/2004-January/024221.html http://lists.elists.org/pipermail/twsocket/2006-March/033175.html I am going to have a look at the ICS user-created sample code, some of which looks promising - i.e. iphelp, socketspy, proxyinfo and traceroute - but any immediate answers would be greatly appreciated. regards Joseph Benson -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
