Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Problem: SilentPost back from Ewebcart

Posted by Bob OConnor on

Ok, I redirected the ssn silent post to an old RH6.2 box with OpenACS/AOLserver from May 2000 AND it WORKS!!! Testing is a slow process because I have to wait for a successful CCard purchase. They have no test button and I don't want to charge anything myself!

SO there must be something with the multi-AOLserver3.2ad12 system. OK I did get around the
HTTP/1.0 302 Found
redirect from nsaMAIN by giving the :2001 port number to bypass it and I get the usual
HTTP/1.0 200 OK but NO data.

Jerrry, There was only a typo in the post.... Normally I make my posts with different file/directory names as a way to discourage the idle curious lurkers :-)

David, I did not find ForceHostP in my nsd.tcl file for AOLserver nor in the /parameters (Openacs).

Conclusion: AOLserver3.2ad12 doesn't like binary posts.

Could this be similar to the problem that Joshua Ginsberg identified in
but perhaps in a different proc than nsvhr.c ?
