inetget error code 13?

What does it mean, when InetGET() returns @Error=13?



This script worked exactly once to download a single JPG image file from a WebCam, GANZ, Model "ZN-MD221M". Any later tries failed

The URL (see script below) doesn't work in FF, IE, Chrome either. In FF it's trying to download the image for maybe 5 Minutes, then FF is giving up, displaying this message:

Die Grafik "http://ADMIN:1234@" kann nicht angezeigt werden, weil sie Fehler enthält.

In English about this:

The Image <url> can't be displayed, as it contains errors.


Wireshark traces shows simply no "answer" to the "GET" for the image file. This is my script:


; GANZ Cam im Bunker
#include <inet.au3>

ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $URL = ' & $URL & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console


ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $File = ' & $File & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console

ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $result = ' & $result & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console

The console output is this one:

>"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\AutoIt3.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.au3" /run /prod /ErrorStdOut /in "H:\DATEN\PUBLIC\Bunker\Script\Mittags-ein-Schuss.au3" /UserParams

so Inetget() returns "Size of download = 0 bytes", and @error=13, what does this error code mean?

Some refactoring

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w- 4 -w 5 -w 6 -w- 7

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <inet.au3>

Func _Example()

    Local $sURL = "http://ADMIN:1234@"
    ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $sURL = ' & $sURL & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console

    Local $sFile = @TempDir & "\bunker.jpg"
    ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $sFile = ' & $sFile & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console

    ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $iResult = ' & $iResult & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console
EndFunc    ;==>_Example

Output the same:


@@ Debug(11) : $sURL = http://ADMIN:1234@
>Error code: 0
@@ Debug(15) : $sFile = C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp\bunker.jpg

But did you try this URL in any browser ?

Thanks for your reply.

Of course you get a timeout, as this URL's IP is almost 100% sure unreachable for you, as is a private IP address range.

It's just not that well known like the most popular one: Even less well known is the private IP range


In the browser this image *IS* displayed -- sometimes...


Propably it's an issue with the integrated web server of this web cam device.


Anyway: Is there some @error code list for inetget()?


If so, I missed it so far.

      Hello there,
      I am using the function InetGet example in the help files on a website and getting the error 13. First, I searched the help files and the forum for a list of errors to consult to no avail. I suspect this is a 400's server reply based error but it would be nice to get more info about it.
      Please help, thanks.

      Hi Guys, I need help. I have searched the forum before posting and i couldn't find anything. The code below works fine when downloading files from "http" sites, but when trying to download from "https" sites, no files are downloaded. I tried different sites and I experience the same problem everywhere. Is there something I'm missing or doing wrong? Please note that I'm not a programmer and I'm new to this. I'm just using logic wherever i can to get things done. your help will be highly appreciated.

      First script here. Thanks for taking the time.
      I want to download a file from my dropbox or other cloud file host and I want autoit to read the file and proceed.
      Here are the references I've gone through, it's just I'm not familiar yet with autoit so I'm looking for advice:
      How would I start out downloading a text file from dropbox and if in the file there is a 1 then it will proceed with the rest of the script if there is a 0 or if the file cannot be downloaded I want it to just end.
      Thank you for taking the time to read this and I apologize in advance if this seems very trivial for some but this is my first script and I'm hoping this is the correct place to ask this question.

      Hi Guys, 
      Since I'm able to get a Dell equipment warranty status thanks to my API key, I'm using an UDF to extract data from an XML file and get the end date. > 
      Thing is, when using InetGet, the original file is in JSON format and the UDF is not working anymore, even if I download the file with the xml extension. Therefore, and when I manually download the page with Chrome, I have a proper XML file where the UDF is working fine.
      Here's my code:
      I even tried to convert the json to xml >
      I took a look here but I don't understand anything :/
      The XML read UDF is just perfect for my needs but I'm stuck here... 
      Thanks for any help you can provide
