Curl couldn't resolve host

Post by Extrasklep » Tue Feb 18, 2020 3:16 pm

Hello, I'm trying to download files using CURL but every time curl gives some weird errors
The URLs are valid and internet settings are correct and everything
The errors I get:

Code: Select all

* timeout on name lookup is not supported
* Curl_ipv4_resolve_r failed for (domain)
* Couldn't resolve host '(domain)'
* Closing connection 0
If I try an IP address it's just

Code: Select all

* timeout on name lookup is not supported
* Closing connection 0
My code:

Code: Select all

int http_init() {
    return curl_global_init(CURL_GLOBAL_ALL); //this doesn't return any errors
}

void http_exit() {
    curl_global_cleanup();
}


//curl write data function
static size_t write_data(void *ptr, size_t size, size_t nmemb, void *stream) {
    size_t written = fwrite(ptr, size, nmemb, (FILE *)stream);
    return written;
}

unsigned char http_downloadfile(const char* url, const char* filename) {
    std::cout << url << ", " << filename << '\n';
    CURL *curl_handle;
    CURLcode cres;
    FILE *file;
    
    /* init the curl session */ 
    curl_handle = curl_easy_init();
    
    /* set URL to get here */ 
    curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_URL, url);
    
    /* Switch on full protocol/debug output while testing */ 
    curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1L);
    
    /* disable progress meter, set to 0L to enable it */ 
    curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_NOPROGRESS, 1L);
    
    /* send all data to this function  */ 
    curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION, write_data);
    
    curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1L);
    
    curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_FAILONERROR, 1L);
    
    curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION, (long)CURL_HTTP_VERSION_2TLS);
    
    curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0L);
    
    curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, "Mozilla/5.0 (Nintendo 3DS; U; ; en) AppleWebKit/536.30 (KHTML, like Gecko)");
    
    curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_STDERR, stdout);
    
    //Open file
    file = fopen(filename, "wb");
    if(file) {
        /* write the page body to this file handle */ 
        curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_WRITEDATA, file);
        
        /* get it! */ 
        cres = curl_easy_perform(curl_handle);
        
        /* close the header file */ 
        fclose(file);
    } else {
        //Unable to open file
        std::cout << "Unable to open file in http_downloadfile\n";
        return 255;
    }
    
    curl_easy_cleanup(curl_handle);
    
    if (cres != CURLE_OK) {
        return 128;
    }

libcurl unable to connect to (any) server

Post by 83tropicstorm » Fri Feb 28, 2020 3:54 am

Hello! I'm rather new to homebrew development (and using C++/C in general) and for some reason I cannot get libcurl to function. I copied over a snippet of code that I had already written using CURL but it wouldn't print out the text file like I wanted. Just to make sure I wasn't doing anything wrong programming wise, I went ahead and copied and pasted a simple example of libcurl I found online and I keep getting the same error. The file I'm linking to can be accessed through the 3DS web browser. I even tried replacing the url with Google but it STILL didn't work! I am not getting any compiler errors and the makefile should be configured properly. I also redownloaded the 3ds toolchain and I am still having this issue. I even tried compiling it as a C file instead of a C++ file in case that was causing it but as you probably guessed, it was pretty useless. I am using Windows (Specifically Windows 10) if that matters. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated as I have wasted almost two days trying to get this to work properly.

This is the code with the 'simple.c' example:

Code: Select all

#include <stdio.h>
#include <curl/curl.h>
#include <3ds.h>

int main(int argc, const char* argv[]) {
	//Initalize GFX
	gfxInitDefault();

	//Create print console objects.
	PrintConsole topScreen, bottomScreen;

	//Initialize the top and bottom screen to be used as console output.
	consoleInit(GFX_TOP, &topScreen);
	consoleInit(GFX_BOTTOM, &bottomScreen);

	consoleSelect(&topScreen);

	CURL* curl;
	CURLcode res;

	curl = curl_easy_init();
	if (curl) {
		curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://192.168.42.68:800/file.txt");
		/* example.com is redirected, so we tell libcurl to follow redirection */
		curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1L);

		/* Perform the request, res will get the return code */
		res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
		/* Check for errors */
		if (res != CURLE_OK)
			fprintf(stderr, "curl_easy_perform() failed: %s\n",
				curl_easy_strerror(res));

		/* always cleanup */
		curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
	}

	//Main loop
	while (aptMainLoop()) {
		consoleSelect(&topScreen);

		hidScanInput();
		u32 kDown = hidKeysDown();

		if (kDown & KEY_START)
			break;

		gfxFlushBuffers();
		gfxSwapBuffers();

		gspWaitForVBlank();
	}

	gfxExit();
}
In case it matters, here is the Makefile I'm using as well:

Re: Curl couldn't resolve host

Same answer for both here - you need to initialise the 3DS socket service before using curl.

See https://github.com/devkitPro/3ds-exampl ... .c#L70-L84 although I used atexit in that code for convenience. You don't need to as long as you call socExit before your app terminates.
