HttpWebRequest - Using to submit time sensitive request.
Posted on 2002-06-26
We are trying to build an app that posts requests to a website that need to be there as close to a certain hour as possible. The app we have built will post request but the time lags as much as 5 secs after hour. I notices that the HttpWebRequest has methods and properties that could be helpful if we could find some descent infomation about them. i.e. BeginGetRequestStream Method,PreAuthenticate Property,Pipelined Property,KeepAlive Property ect...
I believe this could be used to send a request early and by then using the EndGetRequestStream Method completing the request at the desired time. I think this would eliminate some of the problems with hitting the correct time on the host server. Is this possible? Do you have any code examples?
