I’m getting a very weird bug(?) with tclhttpd.
On Mac OS X, I’ve unwrapped the latest tclhttpd starkit distribution
and replaced the htdocs directory with mine; wrapped everything and
copied it onto a Win XP box. If I try to download a .swf file nothing
happens: tclhttp is still responsive but the request just hangs there.
However, if I start it with the -docRoot flag everything works as
On Mac OS X works correctly, either using the starkit docroot or an
external one. Every other file type (text, movies) are served correctly
regardless the OS and the docroot used.
I’m banging my head against the wall... Does anyone have any suggestion?
Not an expert on tclhttpd, but a few questions:
* Can you use wget/curl to download a fake .swf file, a real .swf
I’ve used curl with the real .swf and it hangs after having received the headers.
* or Is the problem that an .swf application cannot access the .swf
* What is wrong with using the -docRoot flag if this makes everything
According to the requirements the final app should be distributed as a starpack, so everything should be self-contained.
Some web servers use OS based mapping files to serve content, it is
possible that XP doesn't have the correct mapping, or the file is
missing or doesn't exist on XP, or your particular OS installation. (I
know some perl scripts do this).
Since starkits use vfs this shouldn’t be a problem. Also, this would explain why using a regular directory with -docRoot doesn’t show any problem.
