http request and netwebget

Previous topic - Next topic


Hello there,

I'm trying to use the netwebget cmd to retrieve some data from a server, actually it is a game server that provide read only data through http request.

problem look like is a HTTP/1.0 at the end of cmd submited by netwebget as you can see the msg bellow...

<TITLE>400 Bad Request</TITLE>
<H1>Bad Request</H1>
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.<P>
Invalid URI in request GET servlet/API?game=1&amp;player=xxxx&amp;apikey=c99d9aaf1999e7bf43 HTTP/1.0<P>

is netwebget suitable for this as well ? or do i need to find another way to do these http requests...

You get what you see in your web browser. If that's of any use for you.


well, just found what is going on...
when using
NETWEBGET("","", 8080, "str$.ini")
where the proxy is a free proxy on the net... it return the correct data, but if using
NETWEBGET("","/servlet/HAPI?game=Gane5&player=Admin&hapikey=a0f3e761647e4d01f3", 80, "str$.ini")
without a proxy server it converted "&" Ampersand to &amp; which is invalid to the server i'm accessing returning no data... weird !!!

Can anyone help me answering why ?


I'm just guessing here as I didn't even know this command existed but try it without the forward slash for the beginning of the location:
Code (glbasic) Select
NETWEBGET("","servlet/HAPI?game=Gane5&player=Admin&hapikey=a0f3e761647e4d01f3", 80, "str$.ini")
The tutorial for netwebget doesn't show the use of a forward slash as the function may automatically add it so it's worth a shot.

&amp; is the HTML representation for &.
