HTTP protocol, HELP

P: n/a
Mat
I would like to write a client-server application which will communicate
through HTTP PROTOCOL . essentially, client will send and received xml
files.
is it possible??

I want to use http protocol to avoid firewall problems.

Most firewalls allow outgoing TCP connections, so you could just connect
from the clients to your server and not worry about HTTP.

Or you could do the easy thing and get a component from www.dart.com .

You want to write a "server" or you want to serve XML files? You might
check into web services which shifts the bulk of the hard work into the
hands of the developers of IIS. While you're busy writing your part they're
busy adding functionality you would have to start reading about.

Is it possible, sure.

Hi Mat,

Take a look at "webclient" that uses the http protocol and fits directly to
your problem I think

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...classtopic.asp
I hope this helps a little bit?

Hi Crirus,
I saw it, but I am of this weekend in some hours, so I think Fergus, can
better help you.

But I think it will be good to isolate the problem.

The first steps end with a download from your Apache server and that goes as
it has to be I did understand,
So the 4 step is a new step that standsalone I think, but I am not so in
that solution from you so I was doubting.

send to it... odds is that prev version was ok...

I have a server that listen on a TCP port for incomming connections.. but
the project is quite big, not only a server-client...
My post was about answering on some issues not posting the whole project :)
So, if you have specific question, I wil try to tell you what I know so
far...
