ASP.Net App Issue... Maybe Resolved via PERL?

    Hey All,

    ASP Info:

    I have some classes that I recently built for a website which uses
    the
    HttpWebRequest & HttpWebResponse objects from the System.Net
    namespace.
    Basically, the classes rap submitted data up, connect to external
    websites
    on external servers and post / remove the data from these other sites.

    It works fine locally but when uploaded to the BCentral production
    server,
    the outgoing requests get shutdown.

    Apparently, for the System.Net name space, you cannot specify the
    port. The
    outgoing port will be dynamic random. It will be the client port and
    not the
    service port. The port range can be 1024 and above. It is by design
    and
    there is no way you can specify the client port.

    Now, as for BCentral, they do allow outbound connections but only on
    the
    "default" ports such at 80 for http, etc. Every other non-essential
    port
    is locked down and they don't open up other ports because of security
    concerns.

    I have been told that posting data via CGI is very common and that one
    can easily specify the port. Has anyone out there done something like
    this?

    Thanks,

    TC

    No. No one has ever done anything with CGI.... My favorite search
    engine doesn't find any hits for "perl cgi", I guess yours doesn't
    either.. :)
