WebDAV Class

Properties   Methods   Events   Config Settings   Errors  

The WebDAV Class implements an easy-to-use interface to the Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning protocol (WebDAV).

Syntax

WebDAV

Remarks

The WebDAV Class supports both plaintext and SSL/TLS connections. When connecting over SSL/TLS the SSLServerAuthentication event allows you to check the server identity and other security attributes. The SSLStatus event provides information about the SSL handshake. Additional SSL related settings are also supported via the Config method.

The class allows remote management of resource properties and properties, including creation, deletion, listing, copying, and moving. Resource locking is also supported.

The ListDirectory and FindProperties methods will list the properties of a resource properties or resource, and a DirList or ResourceProperties event will be fired for each matching resource.

Depth is used to determine which resources or properties are retrieved from the server. A depth of ResourceOnly will return only the resource associated with ResourceURI, or its properties. A depth of Infinity will return all resources contained within hierarchy, or their collective properties.

Note: Some servers (such as IIS 7.5) may not support a depth of Infinity by default and may return a HTTP 403 Forbidden response.

A number of operations can be performed on resources by using the various methods of the class. Please refer to the individual methods for more information.

WebDAV allows non-standard properties to be specified through XML namespaces.

The namespaces are provided in the Namespaces properties, which is filled automatically when retrieving DAV responses, but must be filled manually when requesting non-standard properties.

INT SetAccept(LPCWSTR lpszAccept);
char* ipworks_webdav_getaccept(void* lpObj);
int ipworks_webdav_setaccept(void* lpObj, const char* lpszAccept);
QString GetAccept();
int SetAccept(QString qsAccept);

Default Value

""

Remarks

If this property contains a nonempty string, an HTTP Accept header is added to the request.

The Accept header is used for content negotiation. It provides the server with a comma-separated list of MIME types that are acceptable for its response.

Data Type

String

Authorization Property (WebDAV Class)

This property includes the Authorization string to be sent to the server.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* GetAuthorization();
int SetAuthorization(const char* lpszAuthorization); Unicode (Windows) LPWSTR GetAuthorization();

char* ipworks_webdav_getauthorization(void* lpObj);
int ipworks_webdav_setauthorization(void* lpObj, const char* lpszAuthorization);
QString GetAuthorization();
int SetAuthorization(QString qsAuthorization);

Default Value

""

Remarks

If the Authorization property contains a nonempty string, an Authorization HTTP request header is added to the request. This header conveys Authorization information to the server.

A common use for this property is to specify OAuth authorization string.

This property is provided so that the HTTP class can be extended with other security schemes in addition to the authorization schemes already implemented by the class.

The AuthScheme property defines the authentication scheme used. In the case of HTTP Basic Authentication (default), every time User and Password are set, they are Base64 encoded, and the result is put in the Authorization property in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

Data Type

String

AuthScheme Property (WebDAV Class)

The authentication scheme to use when server authentication is required.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int GetAuthScheme();

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property will tell the class which type of authorization to perform when the User and Password properties are set.

This property should be set to authNone (3) when no authentication is to be performed.

By default, this property is authBasic (0), and if the User and Password properties are set, the class will attempt HTTP Basic Authentication. If AuthScheme is set to authDigest (1), authNtlm (4), or authNegotiate (5), then Digest, NTLM, or Windows Negotiate (Kerberos) authentication will be attempted instead.

If AuthScheme is set to authProprietary (2), then the authorization token must be supplied through the Authorization property.

If AuthScheme is set to authOAuth (6), then the authorization string must be supplied through the Authorization property.

Note: If you set the Authorization property and AuthScheme is not authProprietary or authOAuth, then the AuthScheme will be set automatically to authProprietary (2) by the class.

For security, changing the value of this property will cause the class to clear the values of User, Password, and Authorization.

FirewallUser Property (WebDAV Class)

This property contains a user name if authentication is to be used connecting through a firewall.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* GetFirewallUser();
int SetFirewallUser(const char* lpszFirewallUser); Unicode (Windows) LPWSTR GetFirewallUser();
INT SetFirewallUser(LPCWSTR lpszFirewallUser);
char* ipworks_webdav_getfirewalluser(void* lpObj);
int ipworks_webdav_setfirewalluser(void* lpObj, const char* lpszFirewallUser);
QString GetFirewallUser();
int SetFirewallUser(QString qsFirewallUser);

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property contains a user name if authentication is to be used connecting through a firewall. If the FirewallHost is specified, this property and FirewallPassword properties are used to connect and authenticate to the given Firewall. If the authentication fails, the class fails with an error.

Data Type

String

FollowRedirects Property (WebDAV Class)

This property determines what happens when the server issues a redirect.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int GetFollowRedirects();
int SetFollowRedirects(int iFollowRedirects); Unicode (Windows) INT GetFollowRedirects();
INT SetFollowRedirects(INT iFollowRedirects);

Possible Values

FR_NEVER(0), 
FR_ALWAYS(1),
FR_SAME_SCHEME(2)
int ipworks_webdav_getfollowredirects(void* lpObj);
int ipworks_webdav_setfollowredirects(void* lpObj, int iFollowRedirects);
int GetFollowRedirects();
int SetFollowRedirects(int iFollowRedirects);

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property determines what happens when the server issues a redirect. Normally, the class returns an error if the server responds with an "Object Moved" message. If this property is set to frAlways (1), the new URL for the object is retrieved automatically every time.

If this property is set to frSameScheme (2), the new URL is retrieved automatically only if the URLScheme is the same; otherwise, the class fails with an error.

Note: Following the HTTP specification, unless this property is set to frAlways (1), automatic redirects will be performed only for GET or HEAD requests. Other methods potentially could change the conditions of the initial request and create security vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, if either the new URL server or port are different from the existing one, User and Password are also reset to empty. If, however, this property is set to frAlways (1), the same credentials are used to connect to the new server.

A Redirect event is fired for every URL the product is redirected to. In the case of automatic redirections, the Redirect event is a good place to set properties related to the new connection (e.g., new authentication parameters).

The default value is frNever (0). In this case, redirects are never followed, and the class fails with an error instead.

Data Type

Integer

Idle Property (WebDAV Class)

The current status of the class.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int GetIdle();

Unicode (Windows)
BOOL GetIdle();
int ipworks_webdav_getidle(void* lpObj);
bool GetIdle();

Default Value

TRUE

Remarks

Idle will be False if the component is currently busy (communicating and/or waiting for an answer), and True at all other times.

This property is read-only.

Data Type

Boolean

LocalFile Property (WebDAV Class)

The path to a local file used for DAV operations.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* GetLocalFile();
wchar_t* GetLocalFile_W(); // Windows only
int SetLocalFile(const char* lpszLocalFile);
int SetLocalFile(const wchar_t* lpszLocalFile); // Windows only Unicode (Windows) LPWSTR GetLocalFile();
INT SetLocalFile(LPCWSTR lpszLocalFile);
char* ipworks_webdav_getlocalfile(void* lpObj);
wchar_t* ipworks_webdav_getlocalfile_W(void* lpObj); // Windows only
int ipworks_webdav_setlocalfile(void* lpObj, const char* lpszLocalFile);
int ipworks_webdav_setlocalfile(void* lpObj, const wchar_t* lpszLocalFile); // Windows only
QString GetLocalFile();
int SetLocalFile(QString qsLocalFile);

Default Value

""

Remarks

After a GetResource operation, LocalFile will contain the contents of the resource.

For a PutResource operation, LocalFile contains the data that will be uploaded to the server.

If LocalFile is empty then the received data is provided through the Transfer event.

Data Type

String

LocalHost Property (WebDAV Class)

The name of the local host or user-assigned IP interface through which connections are initiated or accepted.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* GetLocalHost();
int SetLocalHost(const char* lpszLocalHost); Unicode (Windows) LPWSTR GetLocalHost();
INT SetLocalHost(LPCWSTR lpszLocalHost);
char* ipworks_webdav_getlocalhost(void* lpObj);
int ipworks_webdav_setlocalhost(void* lpObj, const char* lpszLocalHost);
QString GetLocalHost();
int SetLocalHost(QString qsLocalHost);

Default Value

""

Remarks

The LocalHost property contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the class initiate connections (or accept in the case of server classs) only through that interface.

If the class is connected, the LocalHost property shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

NOTE: LocalHost is not persistent. You must always set it in code, and never in the property window.

Data Type

String

LockOwner Property (WebDAV Class)

The principle that owns the current resource lock.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* GetLockOwner();
int SetLockOwner(const char* lpszLockOwner); Unicode (Windows) LPWSTR GetLockOwner();
INT SetLockOwner(LPCWSTR lpszLockOwner);
char* ipworks_webdav_getlockowner(void* lpObj);
int ipworks_webdav_setlockowner(void* lpObj, const char* lpszLockOwner);
QString GetLockOwner();
int SetLockOwner(QString qsLockOwner);

Default Value

""

Remarks

Before a call to the LockResource method, LockOwner may be set to the name of a principle or group of principles that will own the lock. If no owner is specified, the server will automatically associate the lock with the requesting principle. After a successful LockResource operation, the class will set the LockOwner property to the correct value returned in the server's response.

Data Type

String

LockScope Property (WebDAV Class)

The scope of the current resource lock.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* GetLockScope();
int SetLockScope(const char* lpszLockScope); Unicode (Windows) LPWSTR GetLockScope();
INT SetLockScope(LPCWSTR lpszLockScope);
char* ipworks_webdav_getlockscope(void* lpObj);
int ipworks_webdav_setlockscope(void* lpObj, const char* lpszLockScope);
QString GetLockScope();
int SetLockScope(QString qsLockScope);

Default Value

""

Remarks

Before a call to the LockResource method, LockScope may be set to the type of scope needed for the lock. Currently the class will only allow two types of scopes to be requested:

"exclusive"The lock belongs exclusively to the requesting principle. No other principle may modify the locked resource URI.
"shared"The locked resource may not be modified by non-trusted principles. Users who have access rights, however, may request a shared lock which they can then use to modify or operate on the resource.

If no scope is specified, the protocol default scope, "exclusive", will be requested. After a successful LockResource operation, the class will set the LockScope property to the correct value returned in the server's response.

Data Type

String

LockTimeout Property (WebDAV Class)

int ipworks_webdav_getlocktimeout(void* lpObj);
int ipworks_webdav_setlocktimeout(void* lpObj, int iLockTimeout);
int GetLockTimeout();
int SetLockTimeout(int iLockTimeout);

Default Value

0

Remarks

Before a call to the LockResource method, LockTimeout may be set to a specific amount of time needed for the locked operation to take place. The timeout is used to determine how long the lock may exist before the server automatically unlocks the resource URI. If Timeout of 0 is specified, the server will use a default timeout. After a successful LockResource operation, the class will set the LockTimeout property to the correct value returned in the server's response.

Data Type

Integer

LockTokens Property (WebDAV Class)

The lock string to be used when submitting operations on a locked resource.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* GetLockTokens();
int SetLockTokens(const char* lpszLockTokens); Unicode (Windows) LPWSTR GetLockTokens();
INT SetLockTokens(LPCWSTR lpszLockTokens);
char* ipworks_webdav_getlocktokens(void* lpObj);
int ipworks_webdav_setlocktokens(void* lpObj, const char* lpszLockTokens);
QString GetLockTokens();
int SetLockTokens(QString qsLockTokens);

Default Value

""

Remarks

Before a call to the LockResource method, LockTokens may be set to the tokens returned by a previous lock operation. This is useful when renewing a timeout. The server will respond with a new timeout value, which will be stored in LockTimeout. If the lock request is not a lock refresh, LockTokens must be empty, and will be parsed out of the server response after a successful call to the LockResource method.

Data Type

String

LockType Property (WebDAV Class)

The type of the current resource lock.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* GetLockType();
int SetLockType(const char* lpszLockType); Unicode (Windows) LPWSTR GetLockType();
INT SetLockType(LPCWSTR lpszLockType);
char* ipworks_webdav_getlocktype(void* lpObj);
int ipworks_webdav_setlocktype(void* lpObj, const char* lpszLockType);
QString GetLockType();
int SetLockType(QString qsLockType);

Default Value

"write"

Remarks

Before a call to the LockResource method, LockType may be set to the type of lock being requested. Currently, the class only supports requesting locks of type "write", although the protocol defines an optional "read" lock. After a successful LockResource operation, the class will set the LockType property to the correct value returned in the server's response.

0

Remarks

This is the type of certificate store for this certificate.

The class supports both public and private keys in a variety of formats. When the cstAuto value is used the class will automatically determine the type. This property can take one of the following values:

0 (cstUser - default)For Windows, this specifies that the certificate store is a certificate store owned by the current user. Note: this store type is not available in Java.
1 (cstMachine)For Windows, this specifies that the certificate store is a machine store. Note: this store type is not available in Java.
2 (cstPFXFile)The certificate store is the name of a PFX (PKCS12) file containing certificates.

Possible values are:

0 (sslpAutomatic - default)Automatically selects the appropriate implementation.
1 (sslpPlatform) Uses the platform/system implementation.
2 (sslpInternal) Uses the internal implementation.

Additional Notes

In most cases using the default value (Automatic) is recommended. The class will select a provider depending on the current platform.

When Automatic is selected, on Windows the class will use the platform implementation. On Linux/macOS the class will use the internal implementation. When TLS 1.3 is enabled via SSLEnabledProtocols the internal implementation is used on all platforms.

Data Type

Integer

SSLServerCertEncoded Property (WebDAV Class)

This is the certificate (PEM/base64 encoded).

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)

int ipworks_webdav_settimeout(void* lpObj, int iTimeout);
int GetTimeout();
int SetTimeout(int iTimeout);

Default Value

60

Remarks

If the Timeout property is set to 0, all operations will run uninterrupted until successful completion or an error condition is encountered.

If Timeout is set to a positive value, the class will wait for the operation to complete before returning control.

The class will use DoEvents to enter an efficient wait loop during any potential waiting period, making sure that all system events are processed immediately as they arrive. This ensures that the host application does not "freeze" and remains responsive.

If Timeout expires, and the operation is not yet complete, the class fails with an error.

Please note that by default, all timeouts are inactivity timeouts, i.e. the timeout period is extended by Timeout seconds when any amount of data is successfully sent or received.

The default value for the Timeout property is 60 seconds.

Data Type

Integer

Unicode (Windows)
LPWSTR Config(LPCWSTR lpszConfigurationString);
char* ipworks_webdav_config(void* lpObj, const char* lpszConfigurationString);
QString Config(const QString& qsConfigurationString);

Remarks

Config is a generic method available in every class. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the class.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a String value; after it returns, call the GetLastErrorCode() method to obtain its result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message.

CopyResource Method (WebDAV Class)

Copy a resource to a new location.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int CopyResource(const char* lpszSourceResourceURI, const char* lpszDestinationResourceURI);

Unicode (Windows)
INT CopyResource(LPCWSTR lpszSourceResourceURI, LPCWSTR lpszDestinationResourceURI);
int ipworks_webdav_copyresource(void* lpObj, const char* lpszSourceResourceURI, const char* lpszDestinationResourceURI);
int CopyResource(const QString& qsSourceResourceURI, const QString& qsDestinationResourceURI);

Remarks

The CopyResource method will copy the resource indicated by SourceResourceURI to a new location under the resource indicated by DestinationResourceURI.

This method is associated with the Depth property. If Depth is set to "0", the class will copy only SourceResourceURI. If Depth is set to "infinity", the class will copy SourceResourceURI and its entire subtree to locations relative to it.

If the user has acquired a LockResource of infinite depth on either DestinationResourceURI or any collection it is under, SourceResourceURI will be added to that lock.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

DeleteResource Method (WebDAV Class)

Delete a resource.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int DeleteResource(const char* lpszResourceURI);

Unicode (Windows)
INT DeleteResource(LPCWSTR lpszResourceURI);
int ipworks_webdav_deleteresource(void* lpObj, const char* lpszResourceURI);
int DeleteResource(const QString& qsResourceURI);

Remarks

The resource or collection specified by ResourceURI is deleted. The DeleteResource method behaves independently of the Depth property. If ResourceURI denotes a non-collection resource, it is first removed from any collection which contains, then is removed from the server. If ResourceURI denotes a collection, the server behaves as if the command were issued with an infinite depth (ie, all internal member URIs denoting single resources or collections are deleted).

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

DoEvents Method (WebDAV Class)

Processes events from the internal message queue.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int DoEvents();

Unicode (Windows)
INT DoEvents();
int ipworks_webdav_doevents(void* lpObj);
int DoEvents();

Remarks

When DoEvents is called, the class processes any available events. If no events are available, it waits for a preset period of time, and then returns.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

FindProperties Method (WebDAV Class)

Get resource property values from the server.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int FindProperties(const char* lpszResourceURI);

Unicode (Windows)
INT FindProperties(LPCWSTR lpszResourceURI);
int ipworks_webdav_findproperties(void* lpObj, const char* lpszResourceURI);
int FindProperties(const QString& qsResourceURI);

Remarks

FindProperties will request the values for the names at each item provided in the Properties properties. The matching URIs and property values will be returned through one or more ResourceProperties events (one for each matching resource).

If there are no Properties set, then the server will be asked for all the properties of the resource. The properties will be returned via one or more ResourceProperties events.

Depth is used to determine which resources or properties are retrieved from the server. A depth of ResourceOnly will return only the resource associated with ResourceURI, or its properties. A depth of Infinity will return all resources contained within hierarchy, or their collective properties.

Note: Some servers (such as IIS 7.5) may not support a depth of Infinity by default and may return a HTTP 403 Forbidden response.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

FindPropertyNames Method (WebDAV Class)

Get resource property names from the server.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)

Unicode (Windows)
INT FindPropertyNames(LPCWSTR lpszResourceURI);
int ipworks_webdav_findpropertynames(void* lpObj, const char* lpszResourceURI);
int FindPropertyNames(const QString& qsResourceURI);

Remarks

FindPropertyNames will request names of all the properties of ResourceURI. The matching URIs will be returned through one or more ResourceProperties events (one for each matching resource), and the property names will be provided through the Properties properties.

Depth is used to determine which resources or properties are retrieved from the server. A depth of ResourceOnly will return only the resource associated with ResourceURI, or its properties. A depth of Infinity will return all resources contained within hierarchy, or their collective properties.

Note: Some servers (such as IIS 7.5) may not support a depth of Infinity by default and may return a HTTP 403 Forbidden response.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

GetProperty Method (WebDAV Class)

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* GetProperty(const char* lpszPropertyName);

Unicode (Windows)
LPWSTR GetProperty(LPCWSTR lpszPropertyName);
char* ipworks_webdav_getproperty(void* lpObj, const char* lpszPropertyName);
QString GetProperty(const QString& qsPropertyName);

Remarks

The class will search through its internal Properties properties for the property identified by PropertyName and will return the value associated with it.

PropertyName may also be a partial XPath expression to the retrieved resource XML. This is useful for reading values of composite properties.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a String value; after it returns, call the GetLastErrorCode() method to obtain its result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message.

Remarks

Fetch the resource using the WebDAV GET method. The resource contents are delivered through the Transfer event, and the HTTP response headers through the Header event.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

Interrupt Method (WebDAV Class)

Interrupt the current method.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int Interrupt();

If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

ListDirectory Method (WebDAV Class)

List the files and subdirectories of the ResourceURI .

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int ListDirectory(const char* lpszResourceURI);

Unicode (Windows)
INT ListDirectory(LPCWSTR lpszResourceURI);
int ipworks_webdav_listdirectory(void* lpObj, const char* lpszResourceURI);
int ListDirectory(const QString& qsResourceURI);

Remarks

This method will return a list of resources from the specified URI. The results will be returned through one or more DirList events (one for each matching resource).

Depth is used to determine which resources or properties are retrieved from the server. A depth of ResourceOnly will return only the resource associated with ResourceURI, or its properties. A depth of Infinity will return all resources contained within hierarchy, or their collective properties.

Note: Some servers (such as IIS 7.5) may not support a depth of Infinity by default and may return a HTTP 403 Forbidden response.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

LockResource Method (WebDAV Class)

Obtain a lock for a specified resource.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int LockResource(const char* lpszResourceURI);

Unicode (Windows)
INT LockResource(LPCWSTR lpszResourceURI);
int ipworks_webdav_lockresource(void* lpObj, const char* lpszResourceURI);
int LockResource(const QString& qsResourceURI);

Remarks

The LockResource method will request a new lock to be placed on ResourceURI in the user's name so that only the user can operate on it. The method is linked to a number of properties that it uses to generate the lock request:

LockOwnerThe principle that will own the lock.
LockScopeThe scope of the lock. The class only currently supports locks of scope "exclusive" and "shared".
LockTimeoutThe amount of time that the lock is allowed to exist before ResourceURI is automatically unlocked by the server.
LockTokensThe lock itself. If the user sets this before making the request, the timeout on the existing lock will be refreshed (reset to 0). Otherwise, a new set of lock tokens will be returned.
LockTypeThe type of lock. The class only currently supports of type "write".

After a successful call to the LockResource method the class will receive the new lock values, which it will parse and store in the lock properties.

This method is associated with the Depth property. If Depth is set to "0", the class will lock only ResourceURI and its properties. If Depth is set to "infinity", the class will lock ResourceURI and its entire subtree.

If MoveResource or CopyResource are used to place a resource or collection in a location under a resource locked with "infinity", the new resource or collection will be added to the lock. Any lock on a collection will prevent non-lock owners from adding resources to that collection.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

MakeDirectory Method (WebDAV Class)

Make a new directory.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int MakeDirectory(const char* lpszResourceURI);

Unicode (Windows)
INT MakeDirectory(LPCWSTR lpszResourceURI);
int ipworks_webdav_makedirectory(void* lpObj, const char* lpszResourceURI);
int MakeDirectory(const QString& qsResourceURI);

Remarks

A new resource collection is created at the location specified by ResourceURI.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

MoveResource Method (WebDAV Class)

Unicode (Windows)
INT MoveResource(LPCWSTR lpszSourceResourceURI, LPCWSTR lpszDestinationResourceURI);
int ipworks_webdav_moveresource(void* lpObj, const char* lpszSourceResourceURI, const char* lpszDestinationResourceURI);
int MoveResource(const QString& qsSourceResourceURI, const QString& qsDestinationResourceURI);

Remarks

The MoveResource method will move the resource indicated by SourceResourceURI to a new location under the resource indicated by DestinationResourceURI.

This method is associated with the Depth property. If Depth is set to "0", the class will move only SourceResourceURI. If Depth is set to "infinity", the class will move SourceResourceURI and its entire subtree to locations relative to it.

If the user has acquired a LockResource of infinite depth on either DestinationResourceURI or any collection it is under, SourceResourceURI will be added to that lock.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

PatchProperties Method (WebDAV Class)

Unicode (Windows)
INT PatchProperties(LPCWSTR lpszResourceURI);
int ipworks_webdav_patchproperties(void* lpObj, const char* lpszResourceURI);
int PatchProperties(const QString& qsResourceURI);

Remarks

When the user calls PatchProperties, the class will send a request to the server to update the existing property list. The method is linked to the Properties property: the class will use the Operation field to tell the server what to do with the properties.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message.

int ipworks_webdav_posttoresource(void* lpObj, const char* lpszResourceURI, const char* lpPostData, int lenPostData);
int PostToResource(const QString& qsResourceURI, QByteArray qbaPostData);

Remarks

Posts data to the resource ResourceURI using the WebDAV POST method. The posted data is taken from PostData. The server response text is received through the Transfer event, and the HTTP response headers through the Header event. If LocalFile is not empty the data (not the headers) is written there as well.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message.

int ipworks_webdav_putresource(void* lpObj, const char* lpszResourceURI);
int PutResource(const QString& qsResourceURI);

Remarks

The data is taken from LocalFile. The server will normally require authentication for this operation, so User and Password must have valid values before the request is made.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

Reset Method (WebDAV Class)

int ipworks_webdav_setproperty(void* lpObj, const char* lpszPropertyName, const char* lpszPropertyValue);
int SetProperty(const QString& qsPropertyName, const QString& qsPropertyValue);

Remarks

This method is used to set a single property to a certain value. The name and new value of the property must be supplied in the parameters for this method.

NOTE: This is the same as calling the PatchProperties on one property where the operation is opSet.

Example

Control.SetProperty("MyProperty", "MyValue")

is equivalent to: Control.PropertyCount = 1 Control.PropertyName(0) = "MyProperty" Control.PropertyValue(0) = "MyValue" Control.PropertyOperation(0) = opSet Control.PatchProperties()

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

UnLockResource Method (WebDAV Class)

};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void Disconnected(WebDAVDisconnectedEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass WebDAV and override this emitter function. virtual int FireDisconnected(WebDAVDisconnectedEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

If the connection is broken normally, StatusCode is 0 and Description is "OK".

If the connection is broken for any other reason, StatusCode has the error code returned by the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP/IP) subsystem. Description contains a description of this code. The value of StatusCode is equal to the value of the TCP/IP error.

Please refer to the Error Codes section for more information.

EndTransfer Event (WebDAV Class)

Fired when a document finishes transferring.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
virtual int FireEndTransfer(WebDAVEndTransferEventParams *e);

Redirect Event (WebDAV Class)

This event is fired when a redirection is received from the server.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
virtual int FireRedirect(WebDAVRedirectEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
const char *Location;
int Accept; int reserved; } WebDAVRedirectEventParams;
Unicode (Windows) virtual INT FireRedirect(WebDAVRedirectEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
LPCWSTR Location;
BOOL Accept; INT reserved; } WebDAVRedirectEventParams;
#define EID_WEBDAV_REDIRECT 9

virtual INT IPWORKS_CALL FireRedirect(LPSTR &lpszLocation, BOOL &bAccept);
class WebDAVRedirectEventParams {
public:
  const QString &Location();

  bool Accept();
  void SetAccept(bool bAccept);

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void Redirect(WebDAVRedirectEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass WebDAV and override this emitter function. virtual int FireRedirect(WebDAVRedirectEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

This event is fired in cases in which the client can decide whether or not to continue with the redirection process. The Accept parameter is always True by default, but if you do not want to follow the redirection, Accept may be set to False, in which case the class fails with an error. Location is the location to which the client is being redirected. Further control over redirection is provided in the FollowRedirects property.

ResourceProperties Event (WebDAV Class)

Fires for each entry returned through a property search.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
virtual int FireResourceProperties(WebDAVResourcePropertiesEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
const char *ResourceURI;
const char *ResourceProperties; int reserved; } WebDAVResourcePropertiesEventParams;
Unicode (Windows) virtual INT FireResourceProperties(WebDAVResourcePropertiesEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
LPCWSTR ResourceURI;
LPCWSTR ResourceProperties; INT reserved; } WebDAVResourcePropertiesEventParams;
#define EID_WEBDAV_RESOURCEPROPERTIES 10

virtual INT IPWORKS_CALL FireResourceProperties(LPSTR &lpszResourceURI, LPSTR &lpszResourceProperties);
class WebDAVResourcePropertiesEventParams {
public:
  const QString &ResourceURI();

  const QString &ResourceProperties();

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void ResourceProperties(WebDAVResourcePropertiesEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass WebDAV and override this emitter function. virtual int FireResourceProperties(WebDAVResourcePropertiesEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

The ResourceProperties event is fired when resource properties are received as a response to FindProperties.

The StartTransfer and EndTransfer events mark the beginning and end of the event stream.

The ResourceProperties contains the full XML containing the properties of the resource.

ResourceURI contains the name of the resource.

The parsed property names, values, and status are contained within the Properties properties.

SetCookie Event (WebDAV Class)

This event is fired for every cookie set by the server.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
virtual int FireSetCookie(WebDAVSetCookieEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
const char *Name;
const char *Value;
const char *Expires;
const char *Domain;
const char *Path;
int Secure; int reserved; } WebDAVSetCookieEventParams;
Unicode (Windows) virtual INT FireSetCookie(WebDAVSetCookieEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
LPCWSTR Name;
LPCWSTR Value;
LPCWSTR Expires;
LPCWSTR Domain;
LPCWSTR Path;
BOOL Secure; INT reserved; } WebDAVSetCookieEventParams;
#define EID_WEBDAV_SETCOOKIE 11

virtual INT IPWORKS_CALL FireSetCookie(LPSTR &lpszName, LPSTR &lpszValue, LPSTR &lpszExpires, LPSTR &lpszDomain, LPSTR &lpszPath, BOOL &bSecure);
class WebDAVSetCookieEventParams {
public:
  const QString &Name();

  const QString &Value();

  const QString &Expires();

  const QString &Domain();

  const QString &Path();

  bool Secure();

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void SetCookie(WebDAVSetCookieEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass WebDAV and override this emitter function. virtual int FireSetCookie(WebDAVSetCookieEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

The SetCookie event is fired for every Set-Cookie: header received from the HTTP server.

The Name parameter contains the name of the cookie, with the corresponding value supplied in the Value parameter.

The Expires parameter contains an expiration time for the cookie (if provided by the server). The time format used is "Weekday, DD-Mon-YY HH:MM:SS GMT". If the server does not provide an expiration time, the Expires parameter will be an empty string. In this case, the convention is to drop the cookie at the end of the session.

The Domain parameter contains a domain name to limit the cookie to (if provided by the server). If the server does not provide a domain name, the Domain parameter will be an empty string. The convention in this case is to use the server specified in the URL (URLServer) as the cookie domain.

The Path parameter contains a path name to limit the cookie to (if provided by the server). If the server does not provide a cookie path, the Path parameter will be an empty string. The convention in this case is to use the path specified in the URL (URLPath) as the cookie path.

The Secure parameter specifies whether the cookie is secure. If the value of this parameter is True, the cookie value must be submitted only through a secure (HTTPS) connection.

SSLServerAuthentication Event (WebDAV Class)

Fired after the server presents its certificate to the client.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
virtual int FireSSLServerAuthentication(WebDAVSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
const char *CertEncoded; int lenCertEncoded;
const char *CertSubject;
const char *CertIssuer;
const char *Status;
int Accept; int reserved; } WebDAVSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams;
Unicode (Windows) virtual INT FireSSLServerAuthentication(WebDAVSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
LPCSTR CertEncoded; INT lenCertEncoded;
LPCWSTR CertSubject;
LPCWSTR CertIssuer;
LPCWSTR Status;
BOOL Accept; INT reserved; } WebDAVSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams;
#define EID_WEBDAV_SSLSERVERAUTHENTICATION 12

virtual INT IPWORKS_CALL FireSSLServerAuthentication(LPSTR &lpCertEncoded, INT &lenCertEncoded, LPSTR &lpszCertSubject, LPSTR &lpszCertIssuer, LPSTR &lpszStatus, BOOL &bAccept);
class WebDAVSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams {
public:
  const QByteArray &CertEncoded();

  const QString &CertSubject();

  const QString &CertIssuer();

  const QString &Status();

  bool Accept();
  void SetAccept(bool bAccept);

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void SSLServerAuthentication(WebDAVSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass WebDAV and override this emitter function. virtual int FireSSLServerAuthentication(WebDAVSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

This event is where the client can decide whether to continue with the connection process or not. The Accept parameter is a recommendation on whether to continue or close the connection. This is just a suggestion: application software must use its own logic to determine whether to continue or not.

When Accept is False, Status shows why the verification failed (otherwise, Status contains the string "OK"). If it is decided to continue, you can override and accept the certificate by setting the Accept parameter to True.

SSLStatus Event (WebDAV Class)

Shows the progress of the secure connection.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
virtual int FireSSLStatus(WebDAVSSLStatusEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
const char *Message; int reserved; } WebDAVSSLStatusEventParams;
Unicode (Windows) virtual INT FireSSLStatus(WebDAVSSLStatusEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
LPCWSTR Message; INT reserved; } WebDAVSSLStatusEventParams;
#define EID_WEBDAV_SSLSTATUS 13

virtual INT IPWORKS_CALL FireSSLStatus(LPSTR &lpszMessage);
class WebDAVSSLStatusEventParams {
public:
  const QString &Message();

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void SSLStatus(WebDAVSSLStatusEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass WebDAV and override this emitter function. virtual int FireSSLStatus(WebDAVSSLStatusEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

The event is fired for informational and logging purposes only. Used to track the progress of the connection.

StartTransfer Event (WebDAV Class)

Fired when a document starts transferring (after the headers).

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
virtual int FireStartTransfer(WebDAVStartTransferEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
int Direction; int reserved; } WebDAVStartTransferEventParams;
Unicode (Windows) virtual INT FireStartTransfer(WebDAVStartTransferEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
INT Direction; INT reserved; } WebDAVStartTransferEventParams;
#define EID_WEBDAV_STARTTRANSFER 14

virtual INT IPWORKS_CALL FireStartTransfer(INT &iDirection);
class WebDAVStartTransferEventParams {
public:
  int Direction();

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void StartTransfer(WebDAVStartTransferEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass WebDAV and override this emitter function. virtual int FireStartTransfer(WebDAVStartTransferEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

The StartTransfer event is fired when the document text starts transferring from the server to the local host.

The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.

Status Event (WebDAV Class)

This event is fired when the HTTP status line is received from the server.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
virtual int FireStatus(WebDAVStatusEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
const char *HTTPVersion;
int StatusCode;
const char *Description; int reserved; } WebDAVStatusEventParams;
Unicode (Windows) virtual INT FireStatus(WebDAVStatusEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
LPCWSTR HTTPVersion;
INT StatusCode;
LPCWSTR Description; INT reserved; } WebDAVStatusEventParams;
#define EID_WEBDAV_STATUS 15

virtual INT IPWORKS_CALL FireStatus(LPSTR &lpszHTTPVersion, INT &iStatusCode, LPSTR &lpszDescription);
class WebDAVStatusEventParams {
public:
  const QString &HTTPVersion();

  int StatusCode();

  const QString &Description();

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void Status(WebDAVStatusEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass WebDAV and override this emitter function. virtual int FireStatus(WebDAVStatusEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

HTTPVersion is a string containing the HTTP version string as returned from the server (e.g., "1.1").

StatusCode contains the HTTP status code (e.g., 200), and Description the associated message returned by the server (e.g., "OK").

Transfer Event (WebDAV Class)

This event is fired while a document transfers (delivers document).

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
virtual int FireTransfer(WebDAVTransferEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
int Direction;
int64 BytesTransferred;
int PercentDone;
const char *Text; int lenText; int reserved; } WebDAVTransferEventParams;
Unicode (Windows) virtual INT FireTransfer(WebDAVTransferEventParams *e);
typedef struct {
INT Direction;
LONG64 BytesTransferred;
INT PercentDone;
LPCSTR Text; INT lenText; INT reserved; } WebDAVTransferEventParams;
#define EID_WEBDAV_TRANSFER 16

virtual INT IPWORKS_CALL FireTransfer(INT &iDirection, LONG64 &lBytesTransferred, INT &iPercentDone, LPSTR &lpText, INT &lenText);
class WebDAVTransferEventParams {
public:
  int Direction();

  qint64 BytesTransferred();

  int PercentDone();

  const QByteArray &Text();

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void Transfer(WebDAVTransferEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass WebDAV and override this emitter function. virtual int FireTransfer(WebDAVTransferEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

The Text parameter contains the portion of the document text being received. It is empty if data are being posted to the server.

The BytesTransferred parameter contains the number of bytes transferred in this Direction since the beginning of the document text (excluding HTTP response headers).

The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.

The PercentDone parameter shows the progress of the transfer in the corresponding direction. If PercentDone can not be calculated the value will be -1.

Note: Events are not re-entrant. Performing time-consuming operations within this event will prevent it from firing again in a timely manner and may affect overall performance.

Config Settings (WebDAV Class)

The class accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

WebDAV Config Settings

EncodeURL:   If set to true the URL will be encoded by the class.

The default value is false. If set to true the URL passed to the class will be URL encoded.

IsDir[i]:   Whether or not the resource at the specified index is a directory.

After calling ListDirectory, this config can be queried to determine whether or not the resource at index i is a directory (collection): webdav.ListDirectory("https://localhost/DAV/"); bool isDir = Convert.ToBoolean(webdav.Config("IsDir[0]"));

An exception will be thrown if an invalid index is specified.

HTTP Config Settings

AcceptEncoding:   Used to tell the server which types of content encodings the client supports.

When AllowHTTPCompression is True, the class adds an Accept-Encoding header to the request being sent to the server. By default, this header's value is "gzip, deflate". This configuration setting allows you to change the value of the Accept-Encoding header. Note: The class only supports gzip and deflate decompression algorithms.

AllowHTTPCompression:   This property enables HTTP compression for receiving data.

This configuration setting enables HTTP compression for receiving data. When set to True (default), the class will accept compressed data. It then will uncompress the data it has received. The class will handle data compressed by both gzip and deflate compression algorithms.

When True, the class adds an Accept-Encoding header to the outgoing request. The value for this header can be controlled by the AcceptEncoding configuration setting. The default value for this header is "gzip, deflate".

The default value is True.

AllowHTTPFallback:   Whether HTTP/2 connections are permitted to fallback to HTTP/1.1.

This configuration setting controls whether HTTP/2 connections are permitted to fall back to HTTP/1.1 when the server does not support HTTP/2. This setting is applicable only when HTTPVersion is set to "2.0".

If set to True (default), the class will automatically use HTTP/1.1 if the server does not support HTTP/2. If set to False, the class fails with an error if the server does not support HTTP/2.

The default value is True.

Append:   Whether to append data to LocalFile.

This configuration setting determines whether data will be appended when writing to LocalFile. When set to True, downloaded data will be appended to LocalFile. This may be used in conjunction with Range to resume a failed download. This is applicable only when LocalFile is set. The default value is False.

Authorization:   The Authorization string to be sent to the server.

If the Authorization property contains a nonempty string, an Authorization HTTP request header is added to the request. This header conveys Authorization information to the server.

This property is provided so that the HTTP class can be extended with other security schemes in addition to the authorization schemes already implemented by the class.

The AuthScheme property defines the authentication scheme used. In the case of HTTP Basic Authentication (default), every time User and Password are set, they are Base64 encoded, and the result is put in the Authorization property in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

BytesTransferred:   Contains the number of bytes transferred in the response data.

This configuration setting returns the raw number of bytes from the HTTP response data, before the component processes the data, whether it is chunked or compressed. This returns the same value as the Transfer event, by BytesTransferred.

ChunkSize:   Specifies the chunk size in bytes when using chunked encoding.

This is applicable only when UseChunkedEncoding is True. This setting specifies the chunk size in bytes to be used when posting data. The default value is 16384.

CompressHTTPRequest:   Set to true to compress the body of a PUT or POST request.

If set to True, the body of a PUT or POST request will be compressed into gzip format before sending the request. The "Content-Encoding" header is also added to the outgoing request.

The default value is False.

EncodeURL:   If set to True the URL will be encoded by the class.

If set to True, the URL passed to the class will be URL encoded. The default value is False.

FollowRedirects:   Determines what happens when the server issues a redirect.

This option determines what happens when the server issues a redirect. Normally, the class returns an error if the server responds with an "Object Moved" message. If this property is set to 1 (always), the new URL for the object is retrieved automatically every time.

If this property is set to 2 (Same Scheme), the new URL is retrieved automatically only if the URL Scheme is the same; otherwise, the class fails with an error.

Note: Following the HTTP specification, unless this option is set to 1 (Always), automatic redirects will be performed only for GET or HEAD requests. Other methods potentially could change the conditions of the initial request and create security vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, if either the new URL server or port are different from the existing one, User and Password are also reset to empty, unless this property is set to 1 (Always), in which case the same credentials are used to connect to the new server.

A Redirect event is fired for every URL the product is redirected to. In the case of automatic redirections, the Redirect event is a good place to set properties related to the new connection (e.g., new authentication parameters).

The default value is 0 (Never). In this case, redirects are never followed, and the class fails with an error instead.

Following are the valid options:

  • 0 - Never
  • 1 - Always
  • 2 - Same Scheme

GetOn302Redirect:   If set to True the class will perform a GET on the new location.

The default value is False. If set to True, the class will perform a GET on the new location. Otherwise, it will use the same HTTP method again.

HTTP2HeadersWithoutIndexing:   HTTP2 headers that should not update the dynamic header table with incremental indexing.

HTTP/2 servers maintain a dynamic table of headers and values seen over the course of a connection. Typically, these headers are inserted into the table through incremental indexing (also known as HPACK, defined in RFC 7541). To tell the component not to use incremental indexing for certain headers, and thus not update the dynamic table, set this configuration option to a comma-delimited list of the header names.

HTTPVersion:   The version of HTTP used by the class.

This property specifies the HTTP version used by the class. Possible values are as follows:

  • "1.0"
  • "1.1" (default)
  • "2.0"
  • "3.0"

When using HTTP/2 ("2.0"), additional restrictions apply. Please see the following notes for details.

HTTP/2 Notes

When using HTTP/2, a secure Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (TLS/SSL) connection is required. Attempting to use a plaintext URL with HTTP/2 will result in an error.

If the server does not support HTTP/2, the class will automatically use HTTP/1.1 instead. This is done to provide compatibility without the need for any additional settings. To see which version was used, check NegotiatedHTTPVersion after calling a method. The AllowHTTPFallback setting controls whether this behavior is allowed (default) or disallowed.

HTTP/3 Notes

HTTP/3 is supported only in .NET and Java.

When using HTTP/3, a secure (TLS/SSL) connection is required. Attempting to use a plaintext URL with HTTP/3 will result in an error.

IfModifiedSince:   A date determining the maximum age of the desired document.

If this setting contains a nonempty string, an If-Modified-Since HTTP header is added to the request. The value of this header is used to make the HTTP request conditional: if the requested documented has not been modified since the time specified in the field, a copy of the document will not be returned from the server; instead, a 304 (not modified) response will be returned by the server and the component throws an exception

The format of the date value for IfModifiedSince is detailed in the HTTP specs. For example: Sat, 29 Oct 2017 19:43:31 GMT.

KeepAlive:   Determines whether the HTTP connection is closed after completion of the request.

If True, the component will not send the Connection: Close header. The absence of the Connection header indicates to the server that HTTP persistent connections should be used if supported. Note: Not all servers support persistent connections. You also may explicitly add the Keep-Alive header to the request headers by setting OtherHeaders to Connection: Keep-Alive. If False, the connection will be closed immediately after the server response is received.

The default value for KeepAlive is False.

KerberosSPN:   The Service Principal Name for the Kerberos Domain Controller.

If the Service Principal Name on the Kerberos Domain Controller is not the same as the URL that you are authenticating to, the Service Principal Name should be set here.

LogLevel:   The level of detail that is logged.

This configuration setting controls the level of detail that is logged through the Log event. Possible values are as follows:

0 (None) No events are logged.
1 (Info - default) Informational events are logged.
2 (Verbose) Detailed data are logged.
3 (Debug) Debug data are logged.

The value 1 (Info) logs basic information, including the URL, HTTP version, and status details.

The value 2 (Verbose) logs additional information about the request and response.

The value 3 (Debug) logs the headers and body for both the request and response, as well as additional debug information (if any).

MaxRedirectAttempts:   Limits the number of redirects that are followed in a request.

When FollowRedirects is set to any value other than frNever, the class will follow redirects until this maximum number of redirect attempts are made. The default value is 20.

NegotiatedHTTPVersion:   The negotiated HTTP version.

This configuration setting may be queried after the request is complete to indicate the HTTP version used. When HTTPVersion is set to "2.0" (if the server does not support "2.0"), then the class will fall back to using "1.1" automatically. This setting will indicate which version was used.

OtherHeaders:   Other headers as determined by the user (optional).

This configuration setting can be set to a string of headers to be appended to the HTTP request headers.

The headers must follow the format "header: value" as described in the HTTP specifications. Header lines should be separated by CRLF ("\r\n") .

Use this configuration setting with caution. If this configuration setting contains invalid headers, HTTP requests may fail.

This configuration setting is useful for extending the functionality of the class beyond what is provided.

ProxyAuthorization:   The authorization string to be sent to the proxy server.

This is similar to the Authorization configuration setting, but is used for proxy authorization. If this configuration setting contains a nonempty string, a Proxy-Authorization HTTP request header is added to the request. This header conveys proxy Authorization information to the server. If ProxyUser and ProxyPassword are specified, this value is calculated using the algorithm specified by ProxyAuthScheme.

ProxyAuthScheme:   The authorization scheme to be used for the proxy.

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyPassword:   A password if authentication is to be used for the proxy.

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyPort:   Port for the proxy server (default 80).

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyServer:   Name or IP address of a proxy server (optional).

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used for the proxy.

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

SentHeaders:   The full set of headers as sent by the client.

This configuration setting returns the complete set of raw headers as sent by the client.

StatusLine:   The first line of the last response from the server.

This setting contains the first line of the last response from the server. The format of the line will be [HTTP version] [Result Code] [Description].

TransferredData:   The contents of the last response from the server.

This configuration setting contains the contents of the last response from the server.

TransferredDataLimit:   The maximum number of incoming bytes to be stored by the class.

If TransferredDataLimit is set to 0 (default), no limits are imposed. Otherwise, this reflects the maximum number of incoming bytes that can be stored by the class.

TransferredHeaders:   The full set of headers as received from the server.

This configuration setting returns the complete set of raw headers as received from the server.

TransferredRequest:   The full request as sent by the client.

This configuration setting returns the full request as sent by the client. For performance reasons, the request is not normally saved. Set this configuration setting to ON before making a request to enable it. Following are examples of this request:

.NET Http http = new Http(); http.Config("TransferredRequest=on"); http.PostData = "body"; http.Post("http://someserver.com"); Console.WriteLine(http.Config("TransferredRequest")); C++ HTTP http; http.Config("TransferredRequest=on"); http.SetPostData("body", 5); http.Post("http://someserver.com"); printf("%s\r\n", http.Config("TransferredRequest"));

UseChunkedEncoding:   Enables or Disables HTTP chunked encoding for transfers.

If UseChunkedEncoding is set to True, the class will use HTTP-chunked encoding when posting, if possible. HTTP-chunked encoding allows large files to be sent in chunks instead of all at once. If set to False, the class will not use HTTP-chunked encoding. The default value is False.

Note: Some servers (such as the ASP.NET Development Server) may not support chunked encoding.

UseIDNs:   Whether to encode hostnames to internationalized domain names.

This configuration setting specifies whether hostnames containing non-ASCII characters are encoded to internationalized domain names. When set to True, if a hostname contains non-ASCII characters, it is encoded using Punycode to an IDN (internationalized domain name).

The default value is False and the hostname will always be used exactly as specified. Note: The CodePage setting must be set to a value capable of interpreting the specified host name. For instance, to specify UTF-8, set CodePage to 65001. In the C++ Edition for Windows, the *W version of the class must be used. For instance, DNSW or HTTPW.

UsePlatformHTTPClient:   Whether or not to use the platform HTTP client.

When using this configuration setting, if True, the component will use the default HTTP client for the platform (URLConnection in Java, WebRequest in .NET, or CFHTTPMessage in Mac/iOS) instead of the internal HTTP implementation. This is important for environments in which direct access to sockets is limited or not allowed (e.g., in the Google AppEngine).

Note: This setting is applicable only to Mac/iOS editions.

UserAgent:   Information about the user agent (browser).

This is the value supplied in the HTTP User-Agent header. The default setting is "IPWorks HTTP Component - www.nsoftware.com".

Override the default with the name and version of your software.

TCPClient Config Settings

ConnectionTimeout:   Sets a separate timeout value for establishing a connection.

When set, this configuration setting allows you to specify a different timeout value for establishing a connection. Otherwise, the class will use Timeout for establishing a connection and transmitting/receiving data.

FirewallAutoDetect:   Tells the class whether or not to automatically detect and use firewall system settings, if available.

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallHost:   Name or IP address of firewall (optional).

If a FirewallHost is given, requested connections will be authenticated through the specified firewall when connecting.

If the FirewallHost setting is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated. Upon successful termination of the request, the FirewallHost setting is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPassword:   Password to be used if authentication is to be used when connecting through the firewall.

If FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the given firewall. If the authentication fails, the class fails with an error.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPort:   The TCP port for the FirewallHost;.

The FirewallPort is set automatically when FirewallType is set to a valid value.

Note: This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallType:   Determines the type of firewall to connect through.

The appropriate values are as follows:

0No firewall (default setting).
1Connect through a tunneling proxy. FirewallPort is set to 80.
2Connect through a SOCKS4 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
3Connect through a SOCKS5 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
10Connect through a SOCKS4A Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used connecting through a firewall.

If the FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the Firewall. If the authentication fails, the class fails with an error.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

KeepAliveInterval:   The retry interval, in milliseconds, to be used when a TCP keep-alive packet is sent and no response is received.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. A TCP keep-alive packet will be sent after a period of inactivity as defined by KeepAliveTime. If no acknowledgment is received from the remote host, the keep-alive packet will be sent again. This configuration setting specifies the interval at which the successive keep-alive packets are sent in milliseconds. This system default if this value is not specified here is 1 second.

Note: This value is not applicable in macOS.

KeepAliveRetryCount:   The number of keep-alive packets to be sent before the remotehost is considered disconnected.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. A TCP keep-alive packet will be sent after a period of inactivity as defined by KeepAliveTime. If no acknowledgment is received from the remote host, the keep-alive packet will be sent again. This configuration setting specifies the number of times that the keep-alive packets will be sent before the remote host is considered disconnected. The system default if this value is not specified here is 9.

Note: This configuration setting is only available in the Unix platform. It is not supported in masOS or FreeBSD.

KeepAliveTime:   The inactivity time in milliseconds before a TCP keep-alive packet is sent.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. By default, the operating system will determine the time a connection is idle before a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) keep-alive packet is sent. This system default if this value is not specified here is 2 hours. In many cases, a shorter interval is more useful. Set this value to the desired interval in milliseconds.

Linger:   When set to True, connections are terminated gracefully.

This property controls how a connection is closed. The default is True.

In the case that Linger is True (default), two scenarios determine how long the connection will linger. In the first, if LingerTime is 0 (default), the system will attempt to send pending data for a connection until the default IP timeout expires.

In the second scenario, if LingerTime is a positive value, the system will attempt to send pending data until the specified LingerTime is reached. If this attempt fails, then the system will reset the connection.

The default behavior (which is also the default mode for stream sockets) might result in a long delay in closing the connection. Although the class returns control immediately, the system could hold system resources until all pending data are sent (even after your application closes).

Setting this property to False forces an immediate disconnection. If you know that the other side has received all the data you sent (e.g., by a client acknowledgment), setting this property to False might be the appropriate course of action.

LingerTime:   Time in seconds to have the connection linger.

LingerTime is the time, in seconds, the socket connection will linger. This value is 0 by default, which means it will use the default IP timeout.

LocalHost:   The name of the local host through which connections are initiated or accepted.

The LocalHost setting contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the class initiate connections (or accept in the case of server classs) only through that interface.

If the class is connected, the LocalHost setting shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

LocalPort:   The port in the local host where the class binds.

This must be set before a connection is attempted. It instructs the class to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine.

Setting this to 0 (default) enables the system to choose a port at random. The chosen port will be shown by LocalPort after the connection is established.

LocalPort cannot be changed once a connection is made. Any attempt to set this when a connection is active will generate an error.

This; setting is useful when trying to connect to services that require a trusted port in the client side. An example is the remote shell (rsh) service in UNIX systems.

MaxLineLength:   The maximum amount of data to accumulate when no EOL is found.

MaxLineLength is the size of an internal buffer, which holds received data while waiting for an EOL string.

If an EOL string is found in the input stream before MaxLineLength bytes are received, the DataIn event is fired with the EOL parameter set to True, and the buffer is reset.

If no EOL is found, and MaxLineLength bytes are accumulated in the buffer, the DataIn event is fired with the EOL parameter set to False, and the buffer is reset.

The minimum value for MaxLineLength is 256 bytes. The default value is 2048 bytes.

MaxTransferRate:   The transfer rate limit in bytes per second.

This configuration setting can be used to throttle outbound TCP traffic. Set this to the number of bytes to be sent per second. By default, this is not set and there is no limit.

ProxyExceptionsList:   A semicolon separated list of hosts and IPs to bypass when using a proxy.

This configuration setting optionally specifies a semicolon-separated list of hostnames or IP addresses to bypass when a proxy is in use. When requests are made to hosts specified in this property, the proxy will not be used. For instance:

www.google.com;www.nsoftware.com

TCPKeepAlive:   Determines whether or not the keep alive socket option is enabled.

If set to True, the socket's keep-alive option is enabled and keep-alive packets will be sent periodically to maintain the connection. Set KeepAliveTime and KeepAliveInterval to configure the timing of the keep-alive packets.

Note: This value is not applicable in Java.

TcpNoDelay:   Whether or not to delay when sending packets.

When true, the socket will send all data that is ready to send at once. When false, the socket will send smaller buffered packets of data at small intervals. This is known as the Nagle algorithm.

By default, this config is set to false.

UseIPv6:   Whether to use IPv6.

When set to 0 (default), the class will use IPv4 exclusively. When set to 1, the class will use IPv6 exclusively. To instruct the class to prefer IPv6 addresses, but use IPv4 if IPv6 is not supported on the system, this setting should be set to 2. The default value is 0. Possible values are:

0 IPv4 Only
1 IPv6 Only
2 IPv6 with IPv4 fallback

SSL Config Settings

LogSSLPackets:   Controls whether SSL packets are logged when using the internal security API.

When SSLProvider is set to Internal, this setting controls whether SSL packets should be logged. By default, this setting is False, as it is only useful for debugging purposes.

When enabled, SSL packet logs are output using the SSLStatus event, which will fire each time an SSL packet is sent or received.

Enabling this setting has no effect if SSLProvider is set to Platform.

OpenSSLCADir:   The path to a directory containing CA certificates.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The path set by this property should point to a directory containing CA certificates in PEM format. The files each contain one CA certificate. The files are looked up by the CA subject name hash value, which must hence be available. If more than one CA certificate with the same name hash value exist, the extension must be different (e.g. 9d66eef0.0, 9d66eef0.1 etc). OpenSSL recommends to use the c_rehash utility to create the necessary links. Please refer to the OpenSSL man page SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) for details.

OpenSSLCAFile:   Name of the file containing the list of CA's trusted by your application.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The file set by this property should contain a list of CA certificates in PEM format. The file can contain several CA certificates identified by

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

... (CA certificate in base64 encoding) ...

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

sequences. Before, between, and after the certificates text is allowed which can be used e.g. for descriptions of the certificates. Please refer to the OpenSSL man page SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) for details.

OpenSSLCipherList:   A string that controls the ciphers to be used by SSL.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The format of this string is described in the OpenSSL man page ciphers(1) section "CIPHER LIST FORMAT". Please refer to it for details. The default string "DEFAULT" is determined at compile time and is normally equivalent to "ALL:!ADH:RC4+RSA:+SSLv2:@STRENGTH".

OpenSSLPrngSeedData:   The data to seed the pseudo random number generator (PRNG).

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

By default OpenSSL uses the device file "/dev/urandom" to seed the PRNG and setting OpenSSLPrngSeedData is not required. If set, the string specified is used to seed the PRNG.

ReuseSSLSession:   Determines if the SSL session is reused.

If set to true, the class will reuse the context if and only if the following criteria are met:

  • The target host name is the same.
  • The system cache entry has not expired (default timeout is 10 hours).
  • The application process that calls the function is the same.
  • The logon session is the same.
  • The instance of the class is the same.

SSLCACertFilePaths:   The paths to CA certificate files on Unix/Linux.

This setting specifies the paths on disk to CA certificate files on Unix/Linux.

The value is formatted as a list of paths separated by semicolons. The class will check for the existence of each file in the order specified. When a file is found the CA certificates within the file will be loaded and used to determine the validity of server or client certificates.

The default value is:

/etc/ssl/ca-bundle.pem;/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt;/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt;/etc/pki/tls/cacert.pem

SSLCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL client authentication.

This setting specifies one or more CA certificates to be included in the request when performing SSL client authentication. Some servers require the entire chain, including CA certificates, to be presented when performing SSL client authentication. The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw
...
eWHV5OW1K53o/atv59sOiW5K3crjFhsBOd5Q+cJJnU+SWinPKtANXMht+EDvYY2w

..
d8q23djXZbVYiIfE9ebr4g3152BlVCHZ2GyPdjhIuLeH21VbT/dyEHHA
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

SSLCipherStrength:   The minimum cipher strength used for bulk encryption.

This minimum cipher strength largely dependent on the security modules installed on the system. If the cipher strength specified is not supported, an error will be returned when connections are initiated.

Please note that this setting contains the minimum cipher strength requested from the security library. The actual cipher strength used for the connection is shown by the SSLStatus event.

Use this setting with caution. Requesting a lower cipher strength than necessary could potentially cause serious security vulnerabilities in your application.

When the provider is OpenSSL, SSLCipherStrength is currently not supported. This functionality is instead made available through the OpenSSLCipherList config setting.

SSLEnabledCipherSuites:   The cipher suite to be used in an SSL negotiation.

The enabled cipher suites to be used in SSL negotiation.

By default, the enabled cipher suites will include all available ciphers ("*").

The special value "*" means that the class will pick all of the supported cipher suites. If SSLEnabledCipherSuites is set to any other value, only the specified cipher suites will be considered.

Multiple cipher suites are separated by semicolons.

Example values when SSLProvider is set to Platform: obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=*"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256;CALG_3DES"); Possible values when SSLProvider is set to Platform include:

When TLS 1.3 is negotiated (see SSLEnabledProtocols) only the following cipher suites are supported:

  • TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
  • TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256
  • TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256

SSLEnabledCipherSuites is used together with SSLCipherStrength.

SSLEnabledProtocols:   Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Not all supported protocols are enabled by default (the value of this setting is 4032). If you want more granular control over the enabled protocols, you can set this property to the binary 'OR' of one or more of the following values:

TLS1.312288 (Hex 3000)
TLS1.23072 (Hex C00) (Default)
TLS1.1768 (Hex 300) (Default)
TLS1 192 (Hex C0) (Default)
SSL3 48 (Hex 30)
SSL2 12 (Hex 0C)

SSLEnabledProtocols - TLS 1.3 Notes

By default when TLS 1.3 is enabled the class will use the internal TLS implementation.

In editions which are designed to run on Windows SSLProvider can be set to Platform to use the platform implementation instead of the internal implementation. When configured in this manner, please note that the platform provider is only supported on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up. The default internal provider is available on all platforms and is not restricted to any specific OS version.

If set to 1 (Platform provider) please be aware of the following notes:

  • The platform provider is only available on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up.
  • SSLEnabledCipherSuites and other similar SSL configuration settings are not supported.
  • If SSLEnabledProtocols includes both TLS 1.3 and TLS 1.2 the above restrictions are still applicable even if TLS 1.2 is negotiated. Enabling TLS 1.3 with the platform provider changes the implementation used for all TLS versions.

SSLEnableRenegotiation:   Whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension is supported.

This setting specifies whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension will be used in the request when using the internal security API. This setting is true by default, but can be set to false to disable the extension.

This setting is only applicable when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

SSLIncludeCertChain:   Whether the entire certificate chain is included in the SSLServerAuthentication event.

This setting specifies whether the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event contains the full certificate chain. By default this value is False and only the leaf certificate will be present in the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event.

If set to True all certificates returned by the server will be present in the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event. This includes the leaf certificate, any intermediate certificate, and the root certificate.

SSLKeyLogFile:   The location of a file where per-session secrets are written for debugging purposes.

This setting optionally specifies the full path to a file on disk where per-session secrets are stored for debugging purposes.

When set, the class will save the session secrets in the same format as the SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable functionality used by most major browsers and tools such as Chrome, Firefox, and cURL. This file can then be used in tools such as Wireshark to decrypt TLS traffice for debugging purposes. When writing to this file the class will only append, it will not overwrite previous values.

Note: This setting is only applicable when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

SSLNegotiatedCipher:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite.

Returns the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipher[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite strength.

Returns the strength of the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g.TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite.

Returns the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake represented as a single string.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm.

Returns the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm strength.

Returns the strenghth of the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedVersion:   Returns the negotiated protocol version.

Returns the protocol version negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedVersion[connId]");

SSLSecurityFlags:   Flags that control certificate verification.

The following flags are defined (specified in hexadecimal notation). They can be or-ed together to exclude multiple conditions:

0x00000001Ignore time validity status of certificate.
0x00000002Ignore time validity status of CTL.
0x00000004Ignore non-nested certificate times.
0x00000010Allow unknown Certificate Authority.
0x00000020Ignore wrong certificate usage.
0x00000100Ignore unknown certificate revocation status.
0x00000200Ignore unknown CTL signer revocation status.
0x00000400Ignore unknown Certificate Authority revocation status.
0x00000800Ignore unknown Root revocation status.
0x00008000Allow test Root certificate.
0x00004000Trust test Root certificate.
0x80000000Ignore non-matching CN (certificate CN not-matching server name).

This functionality is currently not available when the provider is OpenSSL.

SSLServerCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL server certificate validation.

This setting optionally specifies one or more CA certificates to be used when verifying the server certificate. When verifying the server's certificate the certificates trusted by the system will be used as part of the verification process. If the server's CA certificates are not installed to the trusted system store, they may be specified here so they are included when performing the verification process. This setting should only be set if the server's CA certificates are not already trusted on the system and cannot be installed to the trusted system store.

The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

TLS12SignatureAlgorithms:   Defines the allowed TLS 1.2 signature algorithms when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

This setting specifies the allowed server certificate signature algorithms when SSLProvider is set to Internal and SSLEnabledProtocols is set to allow TLS 1.2.

When specified the class will verify that the server certificate signature algorithm is among the values specified in this setting. If the server certificate signature algorithm is unsupported the class fails with an error.

The format of this value is a comma separated list of hash-signature combinations. For instance: TCPClient.SSLProvider = TCPClientSSLProviders.sslpInternal; TCPClient.Config("SSLEnabledProtocols=3072"); //TLS 1.2 TCPClient.Config("TLS12SignatureAlgorithms=sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa"); The default value for this setting is sha512-ecdsa,sha512-rsa,sha512-dsa,sha384-ecdsa,sha384-rsa,sha384-dsa,sha256-ecdsa,sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha224-ecdsa,sha224-rsa,sha224-dsa,sha1-ecdsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa.

In order to not restrict the server's certificate signature algorithm, specify an empty string as the value for this setting, which will cause the signature_algorithms TLS 1.2 extension to not be sent.

TLS12SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for ECC.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.2 for ECC.

The default value is ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1.

When using TLS 1.2 and SSLProvider is set to Internal, the values refer to the supported groups for ECC. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)

TLS13KeyShareGroups:   The groups for which to pregenerate key shares.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. The groups specified here will have key share data pregenerated locally before establishing a connection. This can prevent an additional round trip during the handshake if the group is supported by the server.

The default value is set to balance common supported groups and the computational resources required to generate key shares. As a result only some groups are included by default in this setting.

Note: All supported groups can always be used during the handshake even if not listed here, but if a group is used which is not present in this list it will incur an additional round trip and time to generate the key share for that group.

In most cases this setting does not need to be modified. This should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448"
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1"
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096"
  • "ffdhe_6144"
  • "ffdhe_8192"

TLS13SignatureAlgorithms:   The allowed certificate signature algorithms.

This setting holds a comma separated list of allowed signature algorithms. Possible values are:

  • "ed25519" (default)
  • "ed448" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha512" (default)
The default value is rsa_pss_sha256,rsa_pss_sha384,rsa_pss_sha512,rsa_pkcs1_sha256,rsa_pkcs1_sha384,rsa_pkcs1_sha512,ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256,ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384,ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512,ed25519,ed448. This setting is only applicable when SSLEnabledProtocols includes TLS 1.3.
TLS13SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for (EC)DHE key exchange.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. This setting should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_x448,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072,ffdhe_4096,ffdhe_6144,ffdhe_8192

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)

Socket Config Settings

AbsoluteTimeout:   Determines whether timeouts are inactivity timeouts or absolute timeouts.

If AbsoluteTimeout is set to True, any method which does not complete within Timeout seconds will be aborted. By default, AbsoluteTimeout is False, and the timeout is an inactivity timeout.

Note: This option is not valid for UDP ports.

FirewallData:   Used to send extra data to the firewall.

When the firewall is a tunneling proxy, use this property to send custom (additional) headers to the firewall (e.g. headers for custom authentication schemes).

InBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the incoming queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be receiving. Increasing the value of the InBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the class is activated the InBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

OutBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the outgoing queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be sending. Increasing the value of the OutBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the class is activated the OutBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

Base Config Settings

BuildInfo:   Information about the product's build.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the product's build.

CodePage:   The system code page used for Unicode to Multibyte translations.

The default code page is Unicode UTF-8 (65001).

LicenseInfo:   Information about the current license.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the license this instance of a class is using. It will return the following information:

  • Product: The product the license is for.
  • Product Key: The key the license was generated from.
  • License Source: Where the license was found (e.g., RuntimeLicense, License File).
  • License Type: The type of license installed (e.g., Royalty Free, Single Server).
  • Last Valid Build: The last valid build number for which the license will work.
ProcessIdleEvents:   Whether the class uses its internal event loop to process events when the main thread is idle.

If set to False, the class will not fire internal idle events. Set this to False to use the class in a background thread on Mac OS. By default, this setting is True.

SelectWaitMillis:   The length of time in milliseconds the class will wait when DoEvents is called if there are no events to process.

If there are no events to process when DoEvents is called, the class will wait for the amount of time specified here before returning. The default value is 20.

UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Tells the class whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

By default the class will use the system security libraries to perform cryptographic functions where applicable. Setting this to true tells the class to use the internal implementation instead of using the system's security API.

Trappable Errors (WebDAV Class)

Error Handling (C++)

Call the GetLastErrorCode() method to obtain the last called method's result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. Known error codes are listed below. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message.
