[REBOL] IOS like syncing

From: robert:muench:robertmuench at: 10-Mar-2004 19:40

Hi, I want to create a Rebol based tool (what else?) that posts data to a server, and syncs this data to other uses. Something like an IOS/light. It should work thru HTTP, to avoid firewall problems. I took a look at the IOS proxy C code. But I must say, that I don't understand everything. AFAIU it, this cgi-bin takes the HTTP request from a Link client and mangles it into a format the IOS server can understand, right? How are answered delivered from the IOS server thru the cgi-bin back to Link client? What other methods could I use? I would like to use some web-service like engine on the server. But this thing must support going via a web-server. Has anyone written a generic file-sync / sharing protocol I could use? I think I will store all data into single files, as IOS does, and just sync these. I found the remote-file thing from Ingo, which is pretty close to what I need but it establishes a direct connection, not via a POST/GET CGI proxy. -- Robert M.
