New HTTP Test Tool on

From Jim Harrison: is the latest in a long line of kewl tewls for your ISA pleasure. It was born out of too many people trying to test their ISA publishing using a browser.

This tool allows you to test http connections to and through your ISA and Web services without all the caching and vagaries of various browsers.

There are lots of command-line options and it makes use of only three script objects:

  • WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1 (to handle the HTTP traffic)
  • Scripting.FileSystemObject (to handle the logging)
  • Scripting.Shell (to handle environment variables) is the direct link, but you’ll also find it in each ISA category, since it’s completely unrelated to ISA.

‘cscript http_test.wsf ?’ for instructions..
