HTTPS / SSL Proxy Service/s (enabled)

Before and After Proxy
Click image to view

Enabled basic proxy services for HTTPS / SSL protocol; All/Shared access to the Network Solutions Web site domain of and its service which supported HTTPS / SSL protocol usage has been disabled and discontinued by the web hosting provider. A suitable solution and replacement that is non-Shared can be located via{sitename} and will be enabled for public use of Kitchen Pages computer software Web site/s where required. The indirect external-looking-inward simple http-proxy is provided by htaccess rewrite within each {sitename} sub-directory (hint: two separate rewrites, one with %2 for cgi filenames and the other of $1 for everything else and both using stuff like [R=303,P,L] to force it) that in the case of being unsuccessful will access a php gateway initially designed for use by the Kitchen Page web page management interface (allowing access to actual files) but also serves as a Name-Server for resolving domain names and error catcher. When compared with the former disabled and discontinued service/s – the prefix of 00481d1 will assist the security for End-users by being a unique identifier of a subdomain (other hosted Web sites do have their own prefix).

While HTTPS is supported by all domain names, the certificate provided at this time does NOT match the site name (a practice which is outside of SEO best practices). The issue will cause site programming and client scripting to fail or become unstable producing unwanted or unknown errors. Therefore the ability of End-users/clients to use HTTPS with non-matching certificates will be discontinued at the next planned server/service upgrade – requests will be resolved by the correct site supplied service (HTTPS / SSL protocol proxy supplied Web site page if enabled – however if not enabled then the request will be redirected to be resolved by using the default standard of HTTP).

3D rendering X3DOM web pages

Friday, September 14th, 2012

HTTPS X3DOM view X3DOM view
webGL support enabled

Added X3Dom web page rendering support to KitCAD i3 KGC (all versions); with X3DOM version 1.3.1-dev. Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers support the rendering and webGL display of X3Dom content.

Users with Firefox web Browsers are required to use the Flash player plug-in by default to render 3D content when WebGL/X3Dom is disabled. To enable WebGL/X3Dom support with Firefox web Browsers {before version 34.0} – users will need to make configuration changes. Firefox 14/15/16/+17.0.1/../-34.0 users will need to enter the URL of about:config and change the setting of webgl.force-enabled to be true.

Off-line rendering support is also offered – with other configuration changes to security settings; as described in the maintenance notice.

KitCAD 2.27v5 has been retired

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

The KitCAD 2010 Re-release InstallAware MSI installer downloads have been retired from use. The MSI installer downloads, or previous InstallShield setups and code-key request can still be accessed from historic pages from the KitCAD downloads webpage.

KitCAD i3 KGC file://localhost (TEST) win32 has replaced the previous 2.27 v5 main version offered to new users, from the KitCAD download website.

At a later time the KitCAD 2.27 v5 functions found in KitCAD i3 KGC will be updated where, and when required. The UAC support currently found with KitCAD i3 KGC will be updated overtime to require Highest User Permission rights in-place of Administrator right (current version seeks Administrator rights, resulting in a permission prompt dialog window being displayed on application execution).
