testing HTTPS with openssl « The Sarth Repository

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/08/22

Interesting:

openssl s_client -connect localhost:443

I don’t have a Linux machine here, but this might work too:

gnutls http://www.somesite

And note that when using telnet, the hostnames must match:

$ openssl s_client -connect XXX.XX.XX.XXX:443
... connection information will be displayed …
GET / HTTP/1.1
host: XXX.XX.XX.XXX

or

$ openssl s_client -connect http://www.example.com:443
... connection information will be displayed …
GET / HTTP/1.1
host: http://www.example.com

Don’t MIX

Now I need to research how it works with a proxy… simulate a “connect http/1.1 443” proxy – Google Search.

The fun thing: JEDI.INC got updated a few months ago to support Delphi XE7 provisionally.

Given the Delphi release cycle of twice a year, the Delphi Carpathia aka XE7 rumours this summer, I presume Delphi XE7 is near because of:

By then the list of Delphi Versionen | Delphi-Treff will likely also be updaed.

I’m anxious to see if the (Dutch + English) BIG Delphi Conference organized by Barnsten and Blaise from September 11-12 in the Netherlands will be part of the launch tour.

Anyway: here is the JEDI.INC portion with defines:     Read the rest of this entry »

Windows 8.x: Three keyboard/mouse ways to zoom in or out on start screen (via: YouTube)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/08/22

I love it that in Windows you can do everything both by mouse and keyboard.
Take the start screen: there are 3 ways (mouse only, mouse + keyboard, keyboard only) to zoom in/out in the start screen. Read the rest of this entry »
