HTTP Protocol

The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. Hypertext is structured text that uses logical links (hyperlinks) between nodes containing text. HTTP is the protocol to exchange or transfer hypertext. HTTP functions as a request-response protocol in the client-server computing model. HTTP is designed to permit intermediate network elements to improve or enable communications between clients and servers. HTTP is an application layer protocol designed within the framework of the Internet Protocol Suite; it presumes an underlying and reliable transport layer protocol.

On Demand Webinar - Networking for the Cloud Era

This webinar discusses:
-Common barriers companies experience when moving to the cloud
-How SD-WAN changes the way we look at networks
-Best practices customers should employ moving forward with cloud migration
-What happens behind the scenes of SteelConnect’s one-click button

Hello Experts,

Somehow on some of our websites, the redirect to 443 was shut down.

How would you go about finding the missing redirects?

This is on Windows IIS.

The only thing I can think of is running scans on 80 and 443 and compare the two, but I don't think that will address the missing redirect. We do not have a Web Application Firewall to determine this.

Would the firewall reporting tools work? What the SIEM?

Thank you, your recommendations are appreciated.

We are looking for an FTP apps that we can click on a folder and get the total size of that folder, including its sub-folders; something like WinDirStat.  The most important is to get the size of the folders.  What FTP can we use?

Note: we are using FileZilla, but there is no option like what we want.

Hi

I have an application that needs to connect to a third party server on HTTPS.

App server > Bluecoat device > Firewall > Third party server

Our Bluecoat team are saying they want to block application HTTPS connections because they can't scan them. Note browser traffic uses a different proxy. So we are going to configure our service to use HTTP.

Is there a way to have this converted to HTTPS?

I have finally been able to get a response from a API call and it now sends me back a response which has a Gzip file in it. How can I automate this in VBA to:
1. Decompress this response.
2. Decode it
3. Save it as a file for me to view.

Thanks.

Have a user who is VPNing into network.  When they do they try to access a site (e.g. internal.mysite.com/items).  They are unable to access the site.  They receive an HTTP 403 error.

Hi,

since we use Ubuntu 16 and Apache 2.4.18 the Status Code responded from apache is now:

200 200

Open in new window


instead of

200 OK

Open in new window


Our application is waiting for the "OK" and doesn`t work correctly with the status code "200 200".
Is there a way to tell apache to respond with "200 OK" again?

Many thanks in advance!

On a network, internet connection is limited this way; once you send data and receive reply , isp immediately resets the connection. HTTP access is possible, but HTTPS is seemingly not. Do I have chance to have HTTPS access over this network ? Do you have any idea ?

Hello,

I am developing a php web application that has a login system. The user password is hashed using a code generated salt. Inside my web app, I require API access of an external site and that needs some login credentials to be passed. I am planning that the username and password for this external site will be same as the login credentials of my web app, so that I can query the user details out of my database and send them over to the API request. However, the password in the database is hashed and is thus invalid to be sent to the API call. I thought I can save the password in a session variable, but that is indeed a very bad idea. So, I am lost and I need some suggestion on how to get this working.

Any help is much welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

I work for a company that doesn't have internet access.  I'd like to use some open source software, but it because it has loads of internet based content embedded - e.g. google fonts.  It takes ages to load.

Would it be possible to change all links to local

e.g.

http://themes.googleusercontent.com/static/fonts/opensans/v6/DXI1ORHCpsQm3Vp6mXoaTXhCUOGz7vYGh680lGh-uXM.woff 

To

/static/fonts/opensans/v6/DXI1ORHCpsQm3Vp6mXoaTXhCUOGz7vYGh680lGh-uXM.woff


Many thanks

Microsoft's documentation states that it may return either the Host name or the IP address but it doesn't say how the framework determines which one to return. I'm having a problem in a production environment where Url.Authority returns the host name sometimes and at other times returns the IP address.

I need to ensure that it returns the host name every time. I've created a workaround for the moment but its not ideal, I need to figure out how to fix this.

I'm using the .NET Framework version 4.6.1 in all environments.

This is giving me a headache and I can't figure out what is wrong.

I have a userform which I submit with a submit button.
One of the textboxes is called 'client'.

On the next page, I get the following error message:

Notice: Undefined index: client in E:\xampp\htdocs\sales_insert2.php on line 13

when I put the form variable into a php variable:

$client = htmlspecialchars($_POST["client"]);

What is wrong?

Hi Guys,
I have an Internet Information Services web server, and it was attacked by ransomware.
Honestly I don't even know how can the hacker actually infect the server just by using the port 80.

Since this is a production server I just restored an earlier snapshot and it is now back up and running.

The thing is that now management is requesting a postmortem investigation, and a report stating if there was client information compromised.

We do have a completely different server (SQL Server) that the WEB Server uses to get/save client data, but as far as I can tell the SQL server was not compromised.

Now since I had to restore the snapshot in a rush or otherwise all our clients would be looking at a pretty error page, how can I find some conclusions as to the postmortem report, to answer some questions like:

How did this happen?
Did the attacker penetrated through port 80?
Was any information in the SQL Server compromised?

Heyas,

Are their any applications out there to Test/Monitor whether the maximum number concurrent HTTP requests per host is exceeded it's limit.

I am the beginner in this technology and its been 8 hours straight and i am not able to figure out the issue, the first thing i am not understanding is about first 3 tags,

soapenv:Envelope
soapenv:Header
soapenv:Body

the request which is generated by C# does not include "soapenv:"
More over the exception "Data at the root level is invalid".
I have tried the other way, directly passing the static data by XML and got the response which means that my credentials and server is working fine.  But now i have to pass values dynamically, so gotta use C# way. Any help will be appreciated and I shall be really grateful. Its getting pain in the a** -_-

Thanks in advance.

The XML request is

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns="http://www.juniper.es/webservice/2007/">

Hi Experts

Can anyone tell me how  are non-existent links are coded, in general, and in PHP?

By Non-Existent Links, I mean how EE does it for example:

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28983605/Determining-Project-Cost.html

I do not think that there really is a 28983605 directory, and a Determining-Project-Cost.html static file, since  these are created dynamically? In WordPress, they call it PermaLink.

Thank you

I want that if someone links to our wordpress site and somewhere in the query string there is aaa=<value> then for all external links they are re-written to include that at the end, also the <value> needs to be preserved if the user changes pages and moves around the site, so I'm guessing it needs to be added to the session.

How is this possible?

how to automatically send a file to a ftp server every 6 hours?
0
We have an in-house FTP server running FileZilla Server which has some limits/issues and now we are looking for an alternative solution that meets the following requirements
- Not cloud based. It has to be installed on our own computer in our company.
- When our clients upload files, they do not need any client software to be installed on their computers.
- Does not use FTP protocol.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Experts,

Do HTTP POST packets appear in a broadcast?

Suppose client-1 10.10.10.50/24 tries to authenticate to server 10.10.20.50/24 via HTTP.  
client-2 on 10.10.20.51/24 is sniffing the wire. Will the hTTP POST be broadcasted to client-2?
