We are using IntraWeb and CGDevTools components for our WebServer aplication.

Customer that using our application have more then 70 web users. And approximately 1-2 times every week he gets an error "Invalid characters in URL error".

He sent me exception log:

exception class : EIWException
exception message : Invalid characters in URL.

thread $2730 (TInThreadWithTask):
00a00e48 +238 TDWebSrv.exe IWServer TIWServer.GetUrlPath
00a00671 +0d5 TDWebSrv.exe IWServer TIWServer.Execute
00a0109b +027 TDWebSrv.exe IWServerSession HttpExecute

009fb1f5 +5f5 TDWebSrv.exe InCustomHTTPServer TInCustomHTTPServer.DoExecute
009d081f +00f TDWebSrv.exe InContext TInContext.Run
... ...

Has anyone met this error?

That is hard to diagnose without seeing the actual URL and where it is coming
from. The exception is not coming from Indy's underlying TIdHTTPServer component,
it is coming from AToZed's TIWServer class that sits on top of TIdHTTPServer.
So TIWServer is clearly doing some extra processing and receiving a URL
it does not like.

Also, keep in mind that in leiu of this forum's instabilities over the past
year, AToZed has basically jumped ship here and moved their Support over
to their own NNTP server (news.atozed.com). You might have better luck asking
there, unless AToZed comes back here now that the server is working again.
