Thank you Maurizio. Actually what is the canonical way to make a HTTP call with Naviserver? In our old AOLserver codebase, we have a mix of calls to ns_httpget, ad_httpget, and more recently calls to ns_http (this is the one that works best for us on Windows 2008).

I have fixed the issue.

This is the change in the code:

if (connect(sock, saPtr, Ns_SockaddrGetSockLen(saPtr)) != 0) {
int err = ns_sockerrno;

#ifndef _WIN32
if (!async || (err != EINPROGRESS && err != EWOULDBLOCK)) {
if (!async || (err != WSAEWOULDBLOCK)) {
Ns_LogSockaddr(Warning, "SockConnect fails", saPtr);

The mod will be available in next version of my distribution.
Over the weekend.

Regarding this, ns_http is now the preferred low-level interface for HTTP client functionalities. A higher level interface, that deprecates all the "old school" procs like ad_httpget and such, you can find in [1] and [2].

These are basically wrappers around the API that make easier to issue the requests, also providing backward compatibility with Aolserver by using curl.

Hope this helps
