Cannot Connect

 [1/11] from: ammoncooke:y:ahoo at: 31-Aug-2001 11:21


Hi, Out of the blue REBOL will not connect, I totally deleted rebol, downloaded a fresh copy, & installed it. Still no go. When it attempts to connect to the internet the connecting... thing flashes down in left hand corner, which is wierd because it usually stays there showing the status. I am not using a proxy server nor have I ever. Your help is appreciated. Thanks!! Ammon

From your headers, it looks like you're on Windows. Are you using /view (sorry I don't) or /core? Where is user.r? Or, are you using set-net directly from your script? If not, try that..... Where is your read/write dir? I.E. Sometimes windows configs will force a default read to somewhere else than the current directory.

Hi, It logs in as the proper user, the odd part is the little progress meter down in the left hand window pops up then disappears while REBOL attempts to continue connecting. After I have used set-net at the command prompt what do I do? Thanks!!

Hmmm! Why don't you try this script below. Edit the strings following my-email/from, my-email/server, my-email/to try trace if you like. I find that starting with something very basic at first helps...... REBOL[] my-email: [from "[sender--domain--com]" server "smtp.somewhere.net" to "[recipeint--domain--com]" subject "testing simple SMTP"] ;;===================================================================================== ;;sendmail: arg1 is block with 'sender 'server 'to 'subject ;; arg2 is message body ;;===================================================================================== sendmail: func[setup[block!] message[string!]][ ; try using trace ;trace on set-net[setup/from setup/server none none none none] ;trace off send/header to-email setup/to message make system/standard/email[ from: setup/from subject: setup/subject ] ];end func sendmail my-email "Hi, we're just testing here"

Ammon, I got ahead of myself here, here's a couple more tips. If you run into problems with the script below, and choose to use 'trace AND if you are set up for CGI from your desktop, put in a mime-text header and preformat tag, that way you you might get a better look at the very verbose trace output, see changes below On Fri, Aug 31, 2001 at 12:28:43PM -0700, Ammon Cooke wrote:

Hi this script opens a console & prints: Content-Type: text/html <pre> Thanks!! Ammon

I changed the smtp server & it works now. I think View is having trouble because scripts that access the web don't have a problem doing so. Thanks!! Ammon

It is highly likely that you will need to use different smtp servers, depending on what machine you are sending email from. In most cases, ISP's don't allow rerouting. For instance, if I am testing from my own machine, I have to use smtp.gci.net. If the finished product is running on my domain, then my cgi program must use postoffice.cniweb.net. I automate this by testing the first octet in system/options/cgi/remote-addr I can be fairly certain that if I am testing on my machine, I will find one of the following as the first octet: private-octets: [192 10 172 127] ;thus: if find private-octets pick to-tuple system/options/cgi/remote-addr 1 [testing: true] I believe that the elements in 'private-octets are inclusive of any reserved for private networks and loop-backs. If I'm wrong - please somebody tell me! :>) And of course, all assumptions above are based on sending email from a CGI program. Tim

I am really sorry to hear that. I'm not familiar with /view at all. It must be a time zone thing..... but participation on this list increases "later" in the day. You might try reposting your problem with a different title, that way it will look fresh , and some of the more experienced rebollers will hopefully be reading it. Good luck tim
