P2 not finding updates via localhost http (port 80) [message #133972] Thu, 02 July 2009 05:49 Go to next message

This problem is related to my post entitled "P2 transport initialization
error" but is different enough that I thought it deserved its own thread.

When my 3.5 feature-based self-updating P2-enabled RCP app looks for
updates located at file:// URLs, it discovers updates correctly (it
doesn't download them successfully, which is the topic of that other
post). However, if I simply change those file:// URLs to localhost
http:// URLs (implicitly port 80), it can't find any updates. I've
carefully confirmed that the updates are present on the server and not on
the client and I've made sure that all of the URLs are correct. It's as
if P2 has a problem with localhost http URLs.

This is similar to the issue discussed in other posts on this newsgroup
and in bugs 270749 and 270837, but that issue was for URLs that did NOT
use port 80.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jeff

An update:

My colleague and I tried moving the update site to another server and our
problem persists, so I'm afraid that I was incorrect to suggest that the
issue had something to do with localhost URLs. We're still stymied as to
why our P2 updates would be successfully updated via file:// but not via
http://...

This problem was being caused by an invalid thread access during file
transfer. I filed bug 282333:
