UPS World Ship Proxy Error
  Posted by  Richard Jonas  on Monday, April 21, 2003 at 7:57:11 PM (EST)
Trying to switch to 2002 from 2000, but the UPS World Ship Software can't get throught the 2002 proxy even though it works with 2000. 2002 errors with bad URL.

According to 2000 the URL reports as www.uoss.ups.com:443. Tried connecting with Netscape 4.76 and the connect works but noticed that NS put a "/" at the end of the URL.

Is there a standard being enforced that UPS is violating?

What's your site access tab look like?

I got the same problem but I did not conver from 2000 to 2002.
I am running Windows XP and suddenly the UPS worldship gave a Bad URL everytime it tries to send the ups files. Explorer works fine on the machine and my access site tab is empty.

Prohibited sites tab is blank. Glad I didn't uninstall 2000.

Looking at the site, it's some kind of java applet.

I don't know for sure, but I bet they aren't using port 443 to send communications back to the server which would break SSL standards.

Don't know why it wouldn't work under 2002 but would under 2000. Maybe a bug in 2000.

UPS's tech support people are researching this now. They, of course, don't think they are doing anything wrong, but are concerned about the idea that they are violating standards (which I go not only here but via email from Software602's tech support).

When I know more, I'll post it here.

The problem is not that they are violating standards, it's that they are using a web applet that apparently uses a port OTHER than port 80 (http) or port 443 (https).

I imagine it would work with any nat-based proxy like a hardware router or Internet Connection Sharing, so you may want to try that and use LS for everything else.

They claim they are only using 80 and 443.

Software602's tech support sent a message that: "it appears that this page is a Java applet and is sending communications back on a different port. This is a violation of standard SSL communication RFCs, and therefore we can not support this issue."

BTW: According to UPS Java isn't the issue.

I think Software602 support may be right. I've run into this problem a couple of times, and it always has to do with sites running Java. The problem with Java is it's a completely different application that is downloaded and executed using a virtual machine that may or may not use the browser to communicate.

The thing is, I can hit HTTPS sites all day long, but I can't get to this one site and a couple of bank sites.. so it has to be something on their end with their applications not working on the correct ports. I don't see how it could be anything with LS..seriously.

The workaround is easy enough though, simply run Internet Connection Sharing on your system in leiu of the LS proxy and you'll be fine. NAT will work for this kind of stuff.

Had to give up and put the simple AnalogX proxy server on another computer, just for handling UPS.

I don't think it Java had anything to do with the problem. The key is in the following log entries:

12:57:10 pm PROXY: 0948172.16.16.40 Connection has arrived.

12:57:10 pm PROXY: 0948 Bad URL

12:57:10 pm PROXY: 172.16.16.40 - - [22/Apr/2003:12:57:10 -0500] "" 200
0

12:57:11 pm PROXY: 0948 Connection closed.

The "Bad URL" message indicates that the connection was never attempted. It appears to deal with the lack of a slash at the end of the URL because when a slash is there via Netscape or Mozilla the connection is made and then hangs since the returned data is not made for a browser.
