Open web address with exclusively an IP address

Post by justsomeguyhere »

How would you go about opening a browser to an IP address (xx.xxx.xxx.xx) webpage WITHOUT the https:// at the front end (IE an unsecure connection)?

Are you talking about opening it from rainmeter, or just opening it in general. If it's the later, you use http, it's just https which isn't secure. Same with opening it from rainmeter.

But if you're asking for the general solution we might move this topic. So please specify which it is.

Well so I'd need a solution that doesn't require me to use an http link, and yes these links would be opened by rainmeter. My issue that I'm having is figuring out how to tell rainmeter that the IP address string (without the https:// at the front end) is a url and to treat it as such when it's executed via for example LeftMouseUpAction. Either that or figure out a way to remove the https from the url after the fact(?) because I have it so variables are called to reference the url strings.

What exactly are you asking to do? A web browser is going to open using either http or https. Nothing else, unless you trying to hit an ftp server. Asking it to open just an IP address makes no sense whatsoever; you need to specify the protocol to use.

He's talking about opening that in a browser, probably a local network. But I don’t know how to do that either, that is make a browser go to an ip adress without any protocol. And I don’t think that this is even possible, but I might be wrong.

You could try WinSCP - it is a ftp reader, but the address and likely the need for a password, would remain important.
