Hi All
This is a fantastic piece of software.
I have an app which will send out data in text_binary or json format which will be one line of text normally (small file of roughly 8kb).

It will look something like this -

{source={ivarId={f1d22827-1650-41a0-a31e-28621430bc7d}, channel=1}, common={type=AUDIT_LOG, time=2020-04-20T15:40:11.256Z}, auditLog={clientId=2148, clientIp=127.0.0.1, account=, command=START_LIVE, parameters=[{name=channelId, value=1}, {name=answer, value=1}, {name=replyType, value=1}], result=STATUS_OK}, id={be138cc4-321c-41a9-8d2f-25a1e5d058fc}, addInfo={ivarIp=192.168.1.17}, images=[]}


The protocol it uses to send out is HTTP so i have to provide it a URL for which to send.
Would HTTP File Server work for this if I give it the IP?

welcome celica!
http is a client-server protocol, so you should specify if your app is going to be client or server.
if your app is client then surely you can make it work with HFS, otherwise not.

Hello
It is a 3rd party app over which i have no control.
It will send out a subscription event via http as in the above format, i just need to capture it and save it somewhere so I thought this app would be perfect.

The app will run locally on the same PC as HTTP file server so just a local call is needed.

i just tried it there and I get this response:

i don't know if HFS will be good for you, but you can try.
the first step to allow upload is to give upload permission.
if it is trying to upload to folder "aos" you will have to have this folder in the "virtual file system",  right-click, properties, upload, anyone.
Anyone is not good for security but it is a good start to see if it works.

i'm glad.
i see that you are in a LAN, so if you know that your server is not accessible via internet you may consider to leave the 'anyone', if you trust your LAN users.

to know if the server is accessible iva internet you can use the Menu>self test.
If it fails then you work only in LAN.

it is therefore possible to authorize an on upload account for the real file and to integrate user and password in url

otherwise according to the method of sending data, if they can be done in text mode and not binary, then as much integrate them either in the url or in the form of a form.

for security reasons this data would be processed in a specific section placed in a diff template of the folder hidden in the tree structure, the data processed by the script may be saved after appropriate processing in one or more files as required with names different

the folder can also be protected in access, for only the previous account and the persons authorized to deal with it, thus preserving any risk of intrusion by an anonymous person

if the requests will always come from 192.168.1.14
you can set a ban rule like this: \192.168.1.14
the initial \ will allow only that address to make requests.
I would consider this secure enough.

Menu > limits > bans

Yes, I'll do that.
Whats weird is it should send the image (which it does) and a text file depicted the event status.

You can see below the image gets received fine but no text file.
I wonder is the "Requested GET" is it atttempting to send the text file.

So i enabled - Debug - Dump Traffic and within this file hfs-dump.bin is the text I need, hfs-dump is stored in Downloads folder
I'm not sure why a JSON file is not created in the upload folder.
Instead the only way I can access the JSON data is by viewing the traffic log above.

You can see the contents here:
Is there any way to save the data below to the upload folder?

You can see below the image gets received fine but no text file.
I wonder is the "Requested GET" is it atttempting to send the text file.
7:01:50 PM 192.168.1.14:25221 Requested GET /aos/

since aos is a folder, Requested GET /aos/
represents a request for the listing of the files of the folder.

from the other information you posted i see the upload is done using a different method that's not compatible with HFS, which uses the format used by standard browsers' forms.

That's a shame I cant use HFS
Would you know of any other software that could accept the JSON data?

the point is not the JSON, but the WAY it is sent.
HFS accepts any file format, it doesn't care, just saves it.
In your case it is not sent as a file, indeed no filename is included.
The way I see it, who made that client surely also made the server part. Ask him/her.
Otherwise I don't know if you'll find a software to do what you want. If you don't, find a good php (or python) (or node.js) programmer to build a solution for you. Looks like a 1-hour job.
