CREATE URL, HOST NAME WITH INDY 9

CREATE URL, HOST NAME WITH INDY 9

I tried to create My WebPage (http://www.enclarton.com) for somebody who has computer in other home or city with other telefon line through INTERNET. To access to my home page.

I used TIdHostNameServer (EVENTS) and TIdAuthenticationItem (URL) but I don't know how to set them ?

It's only working while I'm putting address in IE6 :

http://127.0.0.1:8080/

But I want that it is working with :

http://www.enclarton.com

With specified INTERNET HOST NAME : www.enclarton.com

Here is how I was trying :

PROJECT1.DPR --------->

program Project1;

uses
  Forms,
  Unit1 in 'Unit1.pas' {Form1};

{$R *.res}

begin
  Application.Initialize;
  Application.CreateForm(TForm1, Form1);
  Application.Run;
end.

UNIT1.PAS --------->

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, IdBaseComponent, IdComponent, IdTCPServer, IdCustomHTTPServer,
  IdHTTPServer, IdHostnameServer, IdAuthenticationManager;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    IdHTTPServer1: TIdHTTPServer;
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
    procedure IdHTTPServer1CommandGet(AThread: TIdPeerThread;
      ARequestInfo: TIdHTTPRequestInfo;
      AResponseInfo: TIdHTTPResponseInfo);
    procedure sasaCommandHAddr(Thread: TIdPeerThread; Parm:string);
  private
    { Private declarations }
    sasaIdHostNameServer: TIdHostNameServer;
    sasaIdAuthenticationItem: TIdAuthenticationItem;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

procedure TForm1.sasaCommandHAddr(Thread: TIdPeerThread; Parm:string);
begin
Parm:='http://www.enclarton.com';
IdHttpServer1.Threads.Add(Thread);
IdHttpServer1.ParseParams:=True;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  sasaidhostnameserver:=TIdHostNameServer.Create(IdHttpServer1);
  sasaidhostnameserver.Bindings:=IdHTTPServer1.Bindings;
  sasaidhostnameserver.DefaultPort:=8080;
  sasaidhostnameserver.OnCommandHADDR:=sasacommandHAddr;
  sasaidhostnameserver.Active:=True;

  sasaIdAuthenticationItem:=TIdAuthenticationItem.Create(nil);
  sasaIdAuthenticationItem.URL.URI:='http://www.enclarton.com';
  sasaIdAuthenticationItem.URL.Port:='8080';
  sasaIdAuthenticationItem.URL.Host:='127.0.0.1';
end;

procedure TForm1.IdHTTPServer1CommandGet(AThread: TIdPeerThread;
  ARequestInfo: TIdHTTPRequestInfo; AResponseInfo: TIdHTTPResponseInfo);
var
  LocalDoc: string;
  ByteSent: LongInt;
begin
  LocalDoc := 'C:\index.html';
  ByteSent := IdHTTPServer1.ServeFile(AThread, AResponseInfo, LocalDoc);
end;

end.

UNIT1.DFM --------->

object Form1: TForm1
  Left = 192
  Top = 114
  Width = 264
  Height = 120
  Caption = 'Form1'
  Color = clBtnFace

  Font.Style = []
  OldCreateOrder = False
  OnCreate = FormCreate
  PixelsPerInch = 96
  TextHeight = 13
  object IdHTTPServer1: TIdHTTPServer
    Bindings = <
      item
        IP = '127.0.0.1'
        Port = 8080
      end>

first, you need to buy the domain enclarton.com
there is no way around that
second, you will need to host that domain somewhere (you need DNS. most registrars host it free for you(
third, you will need a static IP (which is routable in the internet) on which you will host your site/services.

after those are done, we can continue discussing :)

Hi, ciuly !
I don't know if I'll get IP from DNS (Domain Name Server) or I'll have to use IP form my INTERNET CONNECTION ? After I buy domain enclarton.com and host that domain in DNS ? If I understand it correctly ?

Thank You.

the ip and dns don't have anything in common, except that the name (from dns) resolves to an ip address). but otehr than that, they are 2 different things managed by 2 different entities.

let's take a clear example:
- you go to some registrar (godaddy.com for example)
- you buy the domain and they wil host (not proper word) it for you. meaning they give you DNS control and they freely offer 2 of their DNS servers for the domain
- using the DNS control they provide, you change the ip address (the A record) to point to your hosting companies IP address, or your ISP given IP address, provided it's an internet routable IP address (NOT 192.168.x.y or 10.x.y.z or another one. here's more info on private addresses: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network )

after that, when you ping your domain name, it should resolv to that IP adress and respond (if your firewall is not blocking the ping)
that means that your "network" is ready for your application.

THEN, we can go further and see what exactly you want to do. because what I see there makes no sense. if you are using a http server component, you are not using the get command right. you need to think about the http protocol which is implementd by the http server,
you shuld also know that
"TIdHostNameServer implements RFC 953, which is obsolete and no longer in use". instead, the internet uses DNS :)
