Streaming CGI

software development

#1

Hey all.

Trying to run CGI:IRC as I’m behind a school firewall =/

Everything runs smoothly with the exception of streaming. IRC will load and connect (I verify this by asking friends), but nothing displays inside the frame until I enter /quit, then all the text/users/status will show up. Any ideas?

most likely you need a process running in the browser to keep the live connection with the server. Traditional CGI works just like you are describing, intermittent requests, no streaming. Either a java applet or flash or mayby some crazy google style javascript.

I have had mod_gzip disabled, and still not working so hot. I’d lean towards your argument but would it not say something re: that at the website?
