[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
