RE: XML & IPRISM, FTP



fixed

Adam,

The spot in the program that I have commented out:

// If redirect (websense is active)
//If RetCode = 302;
// UrlRedirect = Http_Redir_Loc();
// Http_SetAuth(HTTP_AUTH_BASIC:'UserID ':'PassWord ');
// RetCode = Http_Url_Get(UrlRedirect : FileName );
// RetCode = Http_Url_Get(Url : FileName );
//EndIf;

Undo the comments and put in your network id and password.
Recompile, that may do it (and it may not).
It worked for WebSense

You can also try to set your authority before you try to go out to the web.

I am willing to put this code in for the IPRISM logon but have no idea how
to proceed on that.

What is boils down to is He as access but the job running on the AS400 does
not pass HIS credentials, or any integrated Windows credentials that the
iPrism requires. Bet if they traced the HTTPAPI they would see the iPrism
logon window. They should build that into the application to get through
the iPrism proxy buy providing a valid logon when the iPrism window pops up.
This goes back to the Who I stated earlier.

I agree with what you're saying Chris. However, in this circumstance, Adam
has stated that he can access the site with a browser on his PC, but he
can't access it with HTTPAPI from his RPG program.

To me, that implies that iPrism is blocking the System i, but is not
blocking his PC. Consequently, software running on his PC should work.
Thus his attempt at using VBA.

Frankly, their security model makes no sense. Block the i, but don't block
PCs? Umm... which one do you think is more likely to get infected by a
virus on a rogue web site? Gee... think about it.
