in thread Capture HTTP Error in Perl

Hi,

Thanks for responding. If my understanding is right, I think I will be able to set the HTTP error code to a customized message . But I do not have the HTTP error code in the first place. I am looking at ways to first capture this. I tried the LWP:UserAgent, with the following code

my $response = $ua->get('http://servername:84/dir/AppPage.pl'); if($response->is_success){ }else{ die $response->status_line; }

This returns me 401 - Not authorized error. I am using Win32::NetAdmin to authrize my user with the user login from env variable. How do I bypass this with the UserAgent module?

Second question is, I get the error when I submit the page, how do I simulate this using the LWP::UserAgent ? My site has several perl scripts on the navigation menu which of which mine is one. I have given my specific .pl file name in the url. But it does not seem to authenticate it.

Genuinely appreciate any feedback.

    The HTTP response code is just a number. It will be in the range 100 to 599 as given in the official IANA list. If you use LWP::UserAgent you can retrieve this number with the code method. If you should need to set the code (and I don't see why you should from what you've said so far) set it just to one of these integers and not to a message.

    I am using Win32::NetAdmin to authrize my user with the user login from env variable. How do I bypass this with the UserAgent module?

    I'm entirely unfamiliar with that module, and indeed with every module under Win32::* - you are on your own there. If it uses HTTP Basic Auth or if you supplant it with HTTP Basic Auth, then you could use the credentials method of LWP::UserAgent to authenticate.

      Hi hippo

      Thanks for the response. The Win32::netAdmin module basically verifies given the user id if he is part of a group who can access the site. My site is on a corporate intranet and needs to be authenticated via sso with no prompting for user id or password. The LWP::UserAgent module does seem to need the credentials aka the 'password' for the user to be authenticated I believe as far as I read through the documentation and in the http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2617.txt http authentication methods .

      Bringing back to my original issue, I am just trying to capture the erratic 'Page cannot be displayed ' error here and tryin to figure out what is triggering it. Any experience with such a situation anyone? I am glad we have explored the known options so far. Appreciate any good advice. Thanks
