Check whether internet / intranet .... and other questions..

Hi Experts,
Could you please help me in the following :

I'm trying to make sure that my web-based product works without any problems in Windows XP SP2.

Since the security settings in the intranet zone and internet zone are different, I would like to put a check in my product to find out if the URL is accessed within intranet or internet.  How do I do this through client-side scripting ?

Also,
1. how do I check the security level (medium / medium-low) ?

2. how do I check if popups are blocked ?

3. how do I check if there are any window-restrictions (status bar, scroll bar - on or off) ?

Thanks,
Benny

For intranet ranges, consult http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1918.html section "3. Private Address Space". Yet, there's no cross-platform-safe way to find out IP from JavaScript, so that must be done with server-side. IP check then can be performed on client-side, with JavaScript.

hi,

sometimes intranets have a different url. the reason for that is, on the intranet, you can access the server by its internal name or alias directly. so one possiblity would be to check if the url has the actual internet domain name or not. depending on the answer, your either dealing with a client from the internet or the intranet (respectively).

the code for that in JavaScript would look like this :

var onTheInternet = ( new String ( window.location ) ) .toLowerCase () .indexOf ( 'http://www.mydomainname.com' ) != -1;

hope that helps,

stephane.

Hi sgalzin,

Thanks for your reply.

Do you mean to give the domain name as a hard coded string (like 'http://www.mydomainname.com' ) in the script ?  I think we cannot do that.   I'm working on a product which can be used by any customer and their website names or domain names will be different.  

What about the other questions ?  Any clue ?

Thanks,
benny

oh, there's more...

2. how do I check if popups are blocked ?
 open one :) if you don't receive valid window handle, than you have them blocked.

3. how do I check if there are any window-restrictions (status bar, scroll bar - on or off) ?
 I doubt that's possible...
