AMIP Community _ Feature Requests _ No need for cURL?

Posted by: banyon Jun 8 2006, 09:00 AM

I know this may be a given suggestion, but are there any plans to have a built in tool like cURL so you don't have to install it seperately? I mean AMIP is nice, but I seen another tool (not nearly as nice) with built in POST or something... you would think that just by building this support in it would eliminate a ldecent percentile of the user side errors I see when setting this up... people not getting it working right just because they forget to install cURL or something.

Yes, I know, built-in support for web integration is a planned thing.

I would like to revive this 4-year old request.
Basically, the main problem with 3rd party programs is security. Allowing curl to communicate through the firewall means that any program can run it too and send something out there.
Is is that hard to implement a simple http request using windows api?

I guess it's a bit paranoid to think that some malware will be searching your disk for the curl.exe and the custom config file for AMIP only to be able to communicate via a proxy/firewall. There are much more easier and more transparent ways to do it.

As for this feature, it's easy to implement a simple ping via HTTP GET, but I was planning a complete solution supporting HTTPS/FTP/SFTP, proxies, with user friendly settings and profiles.
