I have a remote windows app(built with Xojo) that sends a request to My WebApp using UrlConnection and Basic Authentiction. My webapp receives the request in HandleUrl. In the Webapp I can get the username and password and use that to validate against my database. My problem is that on the remote app I always receives status 401 in the content received event. It appears that the Basic Authentication always makes a return trip to the remote app, the first trip always returns 401. I need to be able to know that the validation was good in the remote app, but that is in the second response. How do I get the content received of the second response? I got this code off the the forum and modified it a little bet. I don’t want to use a plugin for this simple validation.
case "basicAuth" var result as Boolean var authHeader, items(), auth, username, password as string ' var i as integer result = false authheader = request.Header("Authorization") if authHeader <> "" then items = authHeader.Split(" ") for i = items.Ubound downto 0 if items(i) = "" then items.Remove(i) end if next if items.Ubound = 1 and items(0) = "Basic" then auth = DecodeBase64(items(1)) username = auth.NthField(":", 1) password = auth.NthField(":", 2) response.Status = 200 result = true end if else Response.Header("WWW-Authenticate") = "Basic realm=""MyRealm""" response.Status = 401 result = true end if return result
