proasp_howto thread: Parse variables through a form from another domain

Message #1 by bart@d... on Fri, 30 Aug 2002 10:52:32
Hi Bart,

WinHTTP 'does' support connections to websites using SSL.

"WinHTTP provides a high level interface for using SSL. While the details of
the SSL handshake and transaction are handled internally, WinHTTP enables
you to retrieve encryption levels, specify the security protocol, and
interact with server and client certificates"


Its just a matter of writing the ASP to send (GET) the variables to your
servlet, then do something with the responseTEXT

Subject: [proasp_howto] Parse variables through a form from another


I want to do the following:

I've a databased which is filled with ZIP and housenumbers.
I want to post those variables to a servlet, which stays on a secure
(https) server somewhere.
The ASP file is stored locally on our webserver.

The servlet is build with a form: you can enter a zip and housenumber and
it returns a code that i want to grab. Instead of filling that form 6000
times, I want to let a script do it for me.

ZIP+hno --> post to servlet --> response --> grab code --> store code in

Does anyone has an idea where to think of? I can't use ASPHTTP because it
doesn't support https URL's.

Method of form = "GET"
