iTunes Podcasting synchronisation breaks when Wifidog is not yet authenticated

Reported by: fproulx Owned by: mina
Priority: lowest Milestone: Gateway 1.1.3
Component: Gateway Version: Gateway SVN
Keywords: itunes, http, podcasting Cc:

Description

When a client has not yet connected to Wifidog and iTunes sends its HTTP request to update podcasts it badly interprets the HTTP redirect...

We might have to trap the iTunes User-Agent and block the HTTP request.

Couple of notes

  1. This bug has been fixed in the latest iTunes
  2. I looked into intercepting the iTunes UserAgent and having WifiDog respond with HTTP code 500, however we've removed the request header parsing from libhttpd, so this becomes a really heavy fix for a bug already fixed in the iTunes client

Unless someone has any objections, I'll mark this ticket as "wontfix" in a few days.

I had the same problem happening to me two days ago with the latest version of iTunes on Mac OS X. Let me know what kind of information I should be providing.

You mean that your podcasts were still invalid after you left the hotspot, or simply that you couldn't update them when not yet logged-in (which is normal)?

Re-closing, no reply from re-opener.
