Re: ncat usage

Use ncat to get the image file, like you did the html file before,
then get the same kind of image file from a different server and
compare the headers again.

You can get an image with the following command:

ncat -C your.host.name 80

And then type:

GET /path/to/image.jpg HTTP/1.0

followed by 2 newlines.

You should get the image served to the command line.  If you wish
you can redirect the output to a file for later comparisons.

If you have a link to a graphic, then that will be transfered as a
second request.   The graphic will have to have it's own http header
that matches the image file you are uploading.

Seems we're making progress!  I did the steps as requested and adjusted
the
headers to match those of several other sites.  Now it looks like the
test
page is coming up, but the connection never seems to close as the
browsers
status continues to show the "Transferring data from 127.0.0.1..."
message.
 Also, the test page has a graphic within it to make sure all the content
is
being served correctly by ncat, but (along with the correct HTML
contents)
the raw contents of the graphic file are shown with any headers that may
be
passed (as if they're not being interpreted by the browser).  Any
thoughts?

Thanks,

Let's try using ncat to debug this connection.
You can get a web page with the following command:

ncat -C scanme.nmap.org 80

And then type:

GET / HTTP/1.0

This is from http://nmap.org/ncat/guide/ncat-usage.html

Try getting a web page from your web site and from another website and
compare them to see what is different.    If the headers were the
same, then the content would be treated identically.

Then try to make your headers look the same.

Good morning James, thanks for the continued help.  So here's where
we're
at
right now... I've modified the code so that ncat stays continually
running
(as well as using the -C parameter as indicated by one of the websites
below).  Could there be a problem with using 'head' in conjunction with
ncat
(or named pipes)?  When I try to access the URI now, instead of the
script
running, the browser is prompting me to save the file.  Thoughts?

Thanks,
Dave



mkfifo "$SI"
mkfifo "$SO"
ncat $sOPTS -Ck -l 127.0.0.1 $iPORT<    "$SI">    "$SO"&


while (( 1 == 1 )); do
   trap exitGraceful SIGINT

   head -n 1 "$SO" | procRequest>    "$SI"
   trap - SIGINT
done

Yes, each file you send has to have the content type and http header
along with the two newlines.

Unless configured to do multiple requests per connection, each
connection from a web browser will send the headers and the content
for just a single get request.

No problem. :)  And I need to use multiple 'Content Type: ...'

one
for the script and one per file sent (along with the 'HTTP/1.1 200

per
requested file)?

Thanks,

Sorry I missed that.

Thanks for the response James.  I did have that line, but with no
trailing
newlines.  Since I've added the newlines to the output, when I
access
the
URI, it's prompting me to save the file instead of executing it.  I
shouldn't need a "Content Type: ..." declaration as well before
executing
the script right?  The executed script should provide that before
sending
output IIRC.

Thanks,
Dave

The file you are trying to upload to the web browser, does it have

A valid file to return would look like this:

HTTP/1.0 200 OK

<html>
  <body>
    <h1>Hello, world!</h1>
  </body>
</html>

Without the http response in the file the browser won't know what
to
do.

I got this example file from here:

You will probably be happier with this (no while loop):

ncat -l -k $iPORT --sh-exec "cat \"$SI\""

Compare to some examples here:

Thanks for the reply David.  I've tried using your stated
command
in
place
of the 'while' loop, but I'm still getting the same result - no
content
in
browser.  Possibly a problem by not using the $SO named pipe?  I
did
take a
look at the example page before I even contacted this mailing
list,
but
I
didn't see anything on there that was helpful.  Any other
thoughts?

Thanks,
Dave
