getdeviceip??? cant get it to work

Whenever, it get to the getDeviceList, it always said that these two line below are wrong.



what wrong with them???

Here is the code of the function getDeviceList()

function getDeviceList(callManager, userID, password, protocol) {

var authstring = text2base64(userID + ":" + password);

var xmlhttp = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP.3.0");

var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument.3.0");

xmlDoc.async = false;

Response.write("About to get Devices List");

xmlhttp.Open("GET", protocol + "://" + callManager + "/CCMAdmin/reports/DeviceListX.asp", false);

xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Authorization", "Basic " + authstring);

xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Connection", "close");



Application("deviceList") = xmlDoc;



Re: getdeviceip??? cant get it to work

Have you tried a regular GET from your webbrowser to the URL you're calling? It could be as simple as using HTTP instead of HTTPs. And I'm pretty sure even JavaScript will give you a halfway usable error with the appropriate try/catch ;) Knowing the exact error will permit to further track down what might be going wrong.

Re: getdeviceip??? cant get it to work

I too am extremely new at this I have been working on this for a couple of days and finally put it all together based on a couple of other posts here and elsewhere.

https is not a problem for xmlhttp. This works fine for me:

Set xmlhttp = CreateObject("MSXML2.serverXMLHttp")

dlurl = "https://ccmpub/CCMAdmin/reports/devicelistx.asp"

Set xmldoc = CreateObject("MSXML2.serverXMLHttp")

xmldoc.setOption 2, 13056 'Ignore certificate errors

xmldoc.Open "GET", dlurl, False, CCM_UID, CCM_PWD

The part that threw me for a few days was the certificate error. My CCM, like most everyone?s (right?), has a self-signed certificate. This causes xmlhttp to throw an error. You can get xmlhttp to ignore this error using the setOption method.
