How to set credentials for a basic authorization in winhttp.au3?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to improve a script made with IE.au3 to reconnect my router now using winhttp.au3. I saw the example of _WinHttpSetCredentials:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_AU3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6

#include "WinHttp.au3"

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)

; !!! The result of this script will be this sent to the server:
 POST /admin.php HTTP/1.1
 Connection: Keep-Alive
 Accept: text/html, application/xhtml+xml, application/xml;q=0.9, */*;q=0.8
 User-Agent: AutoIt/3.3
 Content-Length: 0
 Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=

; My server
Global $sLocalIP = ""
; Initialize and get session handle
Global $hOpen = _WinHttpOpen()
; Get connection handle
Global $hConnect = _WinHttpConnect($hOpen, $sLocalIP)
; Specify the reguest
Global $hRequest = _WinHttpOpenRequest($hConnect, _
        "POST", _ ; verb
        "admin.php", _ ; object
        Default, _ ; version
        Default, _ ; referrer
        "text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8") ; accept types

; Set credentials
_WinHttpSetCredentials($hRequest, $WINHTTP_AUTH_TARGET_SERVER, $WINHTTP_AUTH_SCHEME_BASIC, "admin", "admin")

; Send request
; Wait for the response

; .... The rest of the code here...

; Close handles

I tried the same code but using livehttpheaders to trace the login process I found that the type of authorization is not Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4= as in the example. How can I input mine? I saw that it uses $WINHTTP_AUTH_TARGET_SERVER, $WINHTTP_AUTH_SCHEME_BASIC and when I look at these constants in winhttpconstants.au3 I saw they seem to be memory adress or hexadecimal :) should I use binary to string or something like that or what do I have to input in $iAuthTargets and $iAuthScheme? I would appreciate some guidance in this ;)

The object of the request I think it is sys_status.htm and the method is GET (all info obtained using live http headers plugin for firefox)

Needless to say I tried the code with my user and pass and $WINHTTP_AUTH_TARGET_SERVER and $WINHTTP_AUTH_SCHEME_BASIC as parameters in _WinHttpSetCredentials and it gave me this response:

<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>401 Unauthorized</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY BGCOLOR="#cc9999"><H4>401 Unauthorized</H4>
Authorization required.

I am a bit reliant of posting my code because I'm not sure -and sorry if this is a newbie believing- but could someone login my router from internet knowing the IP (192.168 ... ) and my user and password? I have remote management disabled but I would like to be sure. IF not, I will reply from now on with what I have done but first I need to know what to input in the parameters of _WinHttpSetCredentials.

Thanks for your help!
