Re: Internet Check

The issue comes with whether or not the person who set up the webserver has set up one IP address for his machine, and uses the Domain Name Server (DNS) to resolve where the request goes. … Thank you, George for the ...

Re: Internet Check

I have adapted the function for use in iConvert. The necessary constants and error messages are now within the function. Moreover, if PING with code 80 fails, the test is again performed with code 8080, as George suggested. As default 'refname$' I have chosen "dns.google.com". It was mentioned in ht...

To do this, I have rearranged the code of interest and added subroutines. The program still freezes if the currency data is not present and the "currency" it...
