Patch for ProxyConnect problems

edited November 2010 in Questions

Here is the solution to the problems with ProxyConnect 1.8.4:

The bug causes the first 4 characters of the SSO response to be discarded. If your SSO response starts at the exact beginning of the http body, you'll have a problem.

File: /vanilla/library/core/functions.general.php
(Note this is part of Vanilla core, the ProxyConnect plugin uses it.)

Around line Line 1250 of Vanilla release 2.0.14
if (!$Success)
return $Response;

Change to:
if ($Success)
return $Response;

The reason this bug didn't affect everybody:
If your SSO response started later on in the http body, then the omission of the first 4 characters wouldn't affect you.

My thanks to the Vanilla sw developers for some great sw! I've just started using it and am very pleased with it.
