How to manually GET HTTP from the CSS

I am trying to find out how to manually issue an HTTP GET from the CSS and received the respond to be able to select the proper keep alive setting. I have been able to follow the logic of the current configurations and know that the admin can do it (he is on a 3 weeks trip) but can't remember how.

Any help would be welcome.

Btw, is it possible to access this list by NNTP? I can't remember the name of the Cisco nntp server.

Re: How to manually GET HTTP from the CSS

Here is a script to do what you need.

if ${ARGS}[#] "NEQ" "3"

echo "Usage: httpget \'Hostname Port WebPage\'"

exit script 1

endbranch

! Defines:

set HostName "${ARGS}[1]"

set WebPage "${ARGS}[3]"

set Port "${ARGS}[2]"

! Connect to the remote Host

set EXIT_MSG "Connection Failure"

socket connect host ${HostName} port ${Port} tcp 2000

! Send the GET request for the web page

set EXIT_MSG "Send: Failed"

socket send ${SOCKET} "GET ${WebPage} HTTP/1.0\n\n"

! Get Response

set EXIT_MSG "Receive: Failed"

socket receive ${SOCKET} 2000

! Display Response

set EXIT_MSG "Inspect: Failed"

socket inspect ${SOCKET} pretty

no set EXIT_MSG

socket disconnect ${SOCKET}

exit script 0

Example on how to use it

CSS11503# script play httpget "192.168.30.27 80 /index.html"

CSS11503# if ${ARGS}[#] "NEQ" "3"

echo "Usage: httpget \'Hostname Port WebPage\'"

exit script 1

endbranch

CSS11503# set HostName "${ARGS}[1]"

CSS11503# set WebPage "${ARGS}[3]"

CSS11503# set Port "${ARGS}[2]"

CSS11503# set EXIT_MSG "Connection Failure"

CSS11503# socket connect host ${HostName} port ${Port} tcp 2000

Re: How to manually GET HTTP from the CSS

Thank you, I didn't know about this option. I will try it. After sending the 1st msg, I start looking at the build-in script and it look like it would be possible to use one of the script as a starting point with socket to issue query and print the result.

Anybody ever write such a script? I start with cisco router and switches a long time ago but the CSS is another world. I just print some of the manuals and I am happy to have fast printer!!!
