What this means is that basically, if you can find the real name from the dotted-quad ipaddress, e.g. if your client does a:
ping -a 111.222.333.444and it shows him the real name of the server, as in:
www.company.sethen the WinSock extender will work.
They use "private" IP numbers behind the firewall. I tried from home to ping their public IP number, with the "-a" parameter, but I didn't get any name in response, just the IP number. Maybe the NT machine doesn't have a name?!
If on your client's computer, you type in a DOS Window:
ping -a 10.0.2.11AND if you see you www.company.se in the response, then everything is OK. Otherwise the "Internet" extender will not work.
We have posted a new "WinInet" extender that does not need ip addresses to be nameserved...but it requires Windows 98 or at least MSIE 4.0 installed....
C:\WINDOWS>ping -a 10.0.2.11 Pinging 10.0.2.11 with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 10.0.2.11: bytes=32 time=153ms TTL=116 Reply from 10.0.2.11: bytes=32 time=158ms TTL=116 Reply from 10.0.2.11: bytes=32 time=168ms TTL=116 Reply from 10.0.2.11: bytes=32 time=241ms TTL=116So, I guess I'll have to find a way to put a name on the NT web-server. But how?
I could of course use the new Internet Extender, but I can't force my client to install Windows 98 or MSIE 4 on every computer on their LAN.
