I have a Perl Upload script - it allows uploading to the server. My server is my home pc running IIS. It is also on a Lan. No domain name except from a dynamicdns service. (though my IP is permanent).
How To Test Script on IIS within the Lan?
This script comes in two parts: a .cgi part and a 'demo.html' part. One has to set a few variables in the script.
I think I've done everything right and I want to test it. I used a dynamicdns domain name where it wanted my server domain name.
Of course, I am testing from the same machine the script is on. From within the Lan. I've had hassles with this before in another context. My router does the dns lookup and sees the domain name as being its own address. So the test doesn't work.
I get as far as choosing a file to upload and 'submit'. But then I get an http 405 error. 'Page Cannot Be Displayed'
Can anyone suggest a way around this?
