    HTTP POST request on Nokia N9

    Hello, Forum!

    Here's the situation - I attach some file (JPEG image) to the HTTP POST request so it should be sent to the local server via Wi-Fi and server should return some result (simple text).

    Here's the problem I faced doing this in my Qt-application for Nokia N9 (Meego 1.2 Harmattan).
    After request is sent, proceed by the server and answer is sent back (I can see log on the server) there's a huge delay (about 1 min) before data from server reaches the handset. If answer returns in several parts - the delay is before first part and others are getting very fast (as it should be with the first one too).

    The same code I use in the same app for Symbian^3 (Symbian Anna) on Nokia C6-01 and it works just fine - all the data returns in a couple of seconds (tested in the same network with the same server and request). Also I have several GET requests sending from this app to the same server and all of them works fine too. So it might be the only Meego problem.

    void PostDownloader::sendPostJpgImage(QString url, QImage image) {
        char boundary[] = "AyV04a234DsHeKHcvNds";
        image = image.convertToFormat(QImage::Format_RGB888);
        QByteArray body;
        QBuffer buffer(&body);
        image.save(&buffer, "JPG");
        QByteArray b;
        b.append("Content-Disposition: form-data; name=\"jpgfile\"; filename=\"camera\"\r\n");
        b.append("Content-Type: image/jpeg\r\n");
        QNetworkRequest req = QNetworkRequest(QUrl(url));
        req.setHeader(QNetworkRequest::ContentTypeHeader, QVariant(QString("multipart/form-data; boundary=")+boundary));
        req.setHeader(QNetworkRequest::ContentLengthHeader, QString::number(b.size()));
        req.setRawHeader("Connection", "Close");
        req.setRawHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");
        req.setRawHeader("Keep-Alive", "1");
        mainReply = manager->post(req, b); //POST
        connect(mainReply, SIGNAL(readyRead()), this, SLOT(dataReceived()));
        connect(mainReply, SIGNAL(finished()), this, SLOT(finished()));
    So the delay is before calling the dataReceived() slot. How can this can be solved? What can you advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: HTTP POST request on Nokia N9

    Weird! My advice? Try to use Wireshark to sniff the network data sent by your application on Symbian and on MeeGo. Then compare the two logs.
    You need more info. Unlikely this is a network problem due to the linux network stack.
