That worked! Thank you so much for the proper usage. Where did you find that if I may ask?

When I create ASP.NET MVC web apps I only use POST for this stuff (almost everything I do is ajax calls updating a database at some point). I've inherited this php script and don't really work with php all that much. This is a very simple app and multiple get calls won't cause issues with the db based on how this specific app works and does checks before doing anything with the db, but yes I agree POST is the way to go, but just want to simplify the RakNet side by getting a simple GET to work. I'm not in refactoring mode or caring about this php script at this moment (as again it works and I inherited it with it using GET and I haven't looked into how to work with POST in a php script, which I will do at a later time) I simply need to get RakNet making valid HTTP calls.



No one seems to understand that GETs should not update the database. No one.



There are a lot of rules to remember/experience and a lot of frameworks/languages that people work in. It stands to reason some will be missed by some people. I've written console/desktop apps for most of my life and now switching to web apps within the last year (although this issue isn't for work but play). People all have different situations going on.

Separately, when "data scrolls by quickly," the right thing to do is to start recording, provoke whatever it is you want to look for, and then stop recording, and then look at the capture after-the-fact for traces of clues.



Yep, that's what I do.




Thus, you're not using the library correctly somehow.



Yep, that's what I figured. This doesn't seem to be a popular process for RakNet since there is very little information online about it. I do have the open source version. I'll try stepping through but RakNet is rather complicated so I doubt I'll be able to see why it's not working, but will give it a try.

1. No error or access log errors for php.


2. Wireshark shows nothing when filtering TCP/UDP on port 80. When I have no filters I don't seem to see anything either but the traffic lines move pretty fast since way more stuff is happening.


3. The only function that has a return value is tcp->Start() and that returns true.


4. That's a good point and I'll change it as soon as I can get RakNet to show any sort of activity using the easier Get.



I've used RakNet before with it's normal UDP method of doing things, but I've never used this HTTPConnection object and I can't seem to find much information about it at all. I know there are other libraries I could use but would prefer to not introduce another dependency to the project to do this when RakNet looks like it can handle it, but I just don't know who to work with it. Anyone have any experience with the HTTPConnection class?

That didn't work either.
