Networking (general) Test Plan
Chimera 0.3 specific results in red

This document provides general network functional testing. Specific protocols are handled in specific test plans.

The majority of the tests are link-clicks.

The test needs to be expanded to explain the expected results (right now, the tester is assumed to know what the correct result is).
Also, the tests need to be applied to more entry points for URLs (URL/location bar, "Open as New Window", "Open as Tab", etc.)

URL Schemes

This test covers schemes supported in Mozilla and Navigator 4. More detailed information about URL schemes in mozilla is under contruction.
Area Description Comments
about: about: about: URL handler seems to be missing 150960
aim: Send IM (default) works, see: 145807
mailto: mailto: works, see: 151046
gopher: the original home of gopher gopher: HTML view's inline images (internal-gopher-*) 150962
telnet: telnet:// fails, telnet:// unregistered in Linux and MacOS X: 33282
wais: wais:// WAIS is unimplemented, but RFC specified scheme: 61540
other invalid:// Unimplemented schemes should display error: 100176

DNS, IP addressing, ports and sockets
Area Description Comments
DNS hostnames starts with numbers
maximum label size: 63 characters 
excceeds max label size (64 characters)
nonexistent FQDN
[RFE] Catch illegal DNS requests w/ error 140379
todo: many labels
IPv4 addresses's IP address
localhost, unused port
http://3486011863 decimal ip addressing
http://127.1/ (per bug 12748)

-> no error
-> connection refused
-> connection establishment timeout
Mac OS X, Linux  refuse to connect to broadcast address Win32 says "could not be found", Mac classic times out.
IP addresses in single decimal values should fail: 150966
(Win32 and Linux accepts IP addresses as one large decimal value: 67730
multiple DNS records (need public test example) Preferably a three-address entry that has one non-existent host, one host w/ a listener on the http port, and one valid port. 86917
"internet keywords"
hostname that does not resolve in DNS goes to keywords.
hostname -> default domain in OS.
hostname (URI ignored) ->
Single hostnames do not go to IK, they go to domain guessing.
Internet Keywords is not activated: 155321

localhost handling http://localhost/ connects to 127.0.01 (loopback). If nothing is running will search for keyword:localhost (if Internet Keywords is on) or return connection refused error.
Isolated lan  Necko should work w/o DNS some discussion in bug 11204

Suggestions, questions, feedback for this page: bug 141758

To Do:

Needs more consideration for testing w/ non-standard installs (browser-only, non Mozilla trunk products, etc.)
