Using Win32::Internet to access sites outside of a firewall
Posted on 1997-07-21
I'm using Win32::Internet to write a search engine that retrieves information on different sites. The problem I'm having is that I'm behind a firewall and I don't know how to get around it. I can get through using FTP requests, but I can't read files that way. I want to be able to go to another site, read a file and compare the contents in that file to the search criteria entered. I've tried doing that via ftp, but I have to download the file first. Is there any other way I can do it?
