UniUploader and free hosting services

Postby Shylanna » Sun Sep 16, 2007 8:05 pm

Hi all

I've noticed that UniUploader doesn't work with some free hosting serivices (like mine) because when it tryies to upload datas via POST method to "www.somedomain.com/roster/update.php", it sends a non-standard browser user-agent procedure, here the header i've traced:

Code: Select all
POST /roster/update.php HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: UniUploader 2.0 (UU 2.6.7; English)
Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=9a110af5f8be4e63a88ee0bc2516aee0
Accept: application/x-shockwave-flash,text/xml,application/xml,application/xhtml+xml,text/html;q=0.9,text/plain;q=0.8,image/png,*/*;q=0.5
Content-Length: 183138
Connection: Keep-Alive
Host: devnull.hyperphp.com


Can UniUploader (in the future, i mean) send a standard-broswer header, specially the User-Agent entry like this ?

Code: Select all
POST /roster/update.php HTTP/1.1
Host: devnull.hyperphp.com
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; it; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6
Accept: text/xml,application/xml,application/xhtml+xml,text/html;q=0.9,text/plain;q=0.8,image/png,*/*;q=0.5
Accept-Language: it-it,it;q=0.8,en-us;q=0.5,en;q=0.3
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Keep-Alive: 300
Connection: keep-alive


Same problem detected with jUniUploader.

Thanks and forgive my english, i'm not english speaking :)

There must be a reason your host has a "white list" for agents.

Changing the agent in UU is not possible unless you recompile it.

I won't be adding the option for a custom agent string again.

Or as an alternative, you could use a drop down list for it

UU
FF
IE

And just leave it at that

It could be very useful, many free hosting services simply redirect to a 404 page every requests made by a "non-standard" agent browser.

Hope to see that drop-down list in the future :)

Thanks

Oh well ... i'm looking at the sources of jUniUploader, i'm more confident with java language, so i've made the modification in the User-Agent section.

... but i've troubles compiling the .jar files :P [ok this is the wrong board] :)

As I said, there is a reason your host doesn't want you to use so called "non standard" tools with their services.

If you want to edit the code theres a function called getUserAgent or something like that, more power to you.

Unlocking.

I was an idiot to lock a thread in a forum where discussion is valuable
