Powerful HTTP Server in Pure AutoIt

Recommended Posts

Pardon me for seeming like such a newb - which I am when it comes to networking.

I have two questions:

1. Would the following code create the correct address for a remote browser to navigate to

"c:\squirrely\business.html" on my machine running Manadar's server as is?

#include <Inet.au3>
$PublicIP = _GetIP()
$strAddress = "http://" & $PublicIP & "/squirrely/business.html"
MsgBox(0, "Html address", "The address is: " & $strAddress)

2. How secure is this server ? :)

I can strongly recommend you not to use this server as-is as a server to host your webpages on. That aside, this is pretty secure. There are no obvious exploits like remote code execution or anything.

Also, depending on your router settings, the address is correct. You may also want to navigate to: http://" & $PublicIP & "/business.html

Thanks Manadar !

What I was thinking of is a way to get files to relatives in other cities, that I could send them the address of the file on my machine, and while the public address is still good, they could get them directly from my machine instead of my having to bother with some file-hosting service.

Also, I was thinking maybe there is a way I could use it once a month to maintain my niece's computer who lives in another town - she's only 14 and never defrags or cleans up her system.

I don't have a router, I just use an old dialup connection. I was thinking that perhaps because I have two hard-drive volumes, C: and D:, that I might have to specify a computer name in that address - something like @ComputerName

Since this is up, will use the opportunity to point to two flaws.

First one is while receiving request. Code says that request is over when @CRLF & @CRLF is reached.

Other servers will also consider the combination @CRLF & @LF to be the end. (Or StringRight($requestBuffer, 4) = @CRLF & @LF)

The other flaw is function socketToIPX(). There is If...Then (parentheses) problem.

Other than that, great!

@ line 16, you should try

Dim $sIP = @IPAddress1

instead of @IPAddress2

Or, if your computer is running a web server yet (IIS ?), then disable it or use another port at line 17.

If you modifiy the listening port, your URL will look like :

http://YOUR_IP_HERE:LISTENING_PORT/

Have fun this with great project :mellow:

Apzo.

I hope you're not talking about my code..

This defines whether or not the request has ended:

If StringInStr(StringStripCR($sBuffer[$x]),@LF&@LF) Then

which basically allows for @CRLF & @CRLF. @LF & @CRLF, @CRLF & @LF and @LF & @LF.

Second of all, I don't use SocketToIP .. =P

HTTP this, HTTP that.

Sorry about that. Some other server was commented.

Haha, no problem. I am glad we have it all sorted out ... 8)

By the way, Manadar

Please give some more examples,

which is helpful for me to understand your code.

I've done a line-by-line comment on this code. I hope it'll help you understand it better.

Sorry I haven't documented the functions just as extensive. I couldn't really explain the POST functions in as much detail. If you have any specific questions or requests, just ask me.

@Manadar- see the PM I sent you about a possible security flaw that I decided would be stupid to post publically.

If I'm wrong, I'll update here so I don't scare the readers of this thread :mellow:

Nice Manadar.

Sorry to bother you, I was wondering if you could use these UDFs as a part in your webserver?

Thanks for the suggestion, but no.

"On event driven" TCP in my personal opinion is only useful when dealing with other things at the same time , such as GUI. The other isn't an UDF, but isn't required either way.

AutoIt has native functionality for TCP, no extra UDFs required, and I intend to use it that way. :mellow:

I've updated the source code fixing the security flaw you pointed out in your PM along with some other things that I've fixed previously. Added some mime-types and updated with extensive comments.

All in all, it's worth downloading again.

Thanks so much for finding the security hole, james! I'm glad you found it before anyone got hurt.
