Known Problems and Bug Fixes for Release 2.3.5 of GnuDIP
This is a record of the known problems with the current release of GnuDIP. If possible corrected versions of the affected scripts are provided.
wPerl.exeversion of the Perl interpreter, a query command invoked using the
-qoption cannot return the address via standard output. This appears to be a problem with ActivePerl. Perhaps it will go away in a later ActivePerl release.
Otherwise the "IPdetect" Java applet could be modified to send the address at the local end of its connection back to GnuDIP to a new CGI in GnuDIP. A unique ID would have to be passed to the applet and also placed in a hidden CGI input field in the HTML for the login page. The new CGI would have to save the IP address so that it can be retrieved again using this ID. This would greatly complicate GnuDIP. It might be better to just drop this feature.
