When AutoRedirect is set to True (it is set to
True by default), if server points to redirected
resource, wodHttpDLX will automatically send new requests
for you in order to retrieve document you really intended
to. Typically, redirection occurs as a result of 301 and
302 responses (Temporarily or Permanently moved
documents). However - in order for authentication
(especially NTLM) to work properly, this property also
needs to be set to True!
In other words - if you enable this property, wodHttpDLX
can send more than one request to the server (instead of
you) to retrieve the document. If you set it to False -
wodHttpDLX will do exactly what told by your commands,
possibly with results you didn't really expected. So,
using True is preferred value.
You would never know, but assuming that you need to grab
resource on the server and you need to authenticate
yourself to the proxy server (using NTLM authentication),
and to grab resource from the web server that is
password-protected, wodHttpDLX will issue 9 (NINE!)
requests for you automatically - based on responses it gets
from the (proxy?) server. Well - as a result of all of this
you will get what you needed. So, we hope automation in
wodHttpDLX will find it's place in your applications.
Make sure you're prepared for numerous StateChange
events to be fired in such cases.
