Re^2: Send user to a different server

in thread Send user to a different server

I have no problem doing the POST, the problem is, as someone else correctly said, that the data is sent back to me and I present it (and collect new data) through the NON-secure server, which is a problem.
Thanks for the help though.

    AFAI Understand your pb, I may schematize it like:

    +----------------+ | Client Browser | +----------------+ |^ ^ |^ || / || [A] || / || [C*] || / || v| /(B2) v| +----------+ +-----------+ | HTTP Svr | | HTTPS Svr | +----------+ +-----------+ (B1) \ ^ (C1) v _ / / \ |\_/| | | \_/


    • A: POST/OK action(request)/responses(status) exchanges required to validate form datas.
    • B: (1) storage of form datas and (2) HTTP 30(2|3) response reply when data are validated to redirect client to secured server (without forgetting passing a kind of index to stored datas).
    • C: GET/POST/OK action(request)/responses(status) exchanges around secure datas. GET (required, see below) would retrieve previously stored datas.

    You may report to this (Redirection of a POST transaction to another URL as POST) for more details about requirements.

    Caution: I've not tested this stuff, but you could merely post your perl solution to CUFP ;)
