Server-communcation

How to establish communication with a web-server
(http-based) with Delphi (no Socket-components,
cause Delphi basic package, no client-server-components)?

Are there any stable (free) components available
somewhere?

Thanks for help,

Gamba

Sounds good, but I cannot get it compiled:

requires
  vcl,
  designide,
  Indy60;


Where is vcl.pas or vcl.dcu (and designide) in Delphi4??
Or did I download the wrong version (dclIndy60.dpk).

If so, is there any version for delphi4 available
(i did not find any...).

They explain on the site how to compile for delphi4

Should work.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

Followed the instructions, but still
vcl.pas can not be found (this unit
seems not to exist in delphi4, even not
with update #3).

I tried to use ics instead, but I guess,
this does not support ssl.

I don't know what is wrong. You should open the *.dpk files compile and install. If that doesn't work I suggest you try mailing to a support guy or check a newsgroup. I can't help here.

The indy components support SSL but because it is an american product you need to download the 128 bit encryptuin modules from a slovenian website.

Good luck Jacco

I will try so.

Points to you anyone, I think, basically Indy
seems to be a powerful tool!

Thank you,
