TypeError exception thrown from CustomCloud.sendMessage

When I retrieve a small web page using CustomCloud, an exception is thrown from the read_socket method of the Modem class. The read socket data command (+USORD) apparently fails because the number of bytes requested exceeds the maximum allowed (512 in HEX mode).

Am I missing something?

Modem: Nova-R410
Python SDK Version: 0.9.0
SARA-R410 Firmware Version: L0.0.00.00.05.08

Here’s the code:

from Hologram.CustomCloud import CustomCloud
import logging

logger = logging.getLogger()
logger.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)

handler = logging.StreamHandler()
handler.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
logger.addHandler(handler)

o = CustomCloud(None, network=‘cellular’, send_host=‘www.example.com’, send_port=80)

message = ‘GET / HTTP/1.1\r\n’
‘Host: www.example.com\r\n\r\n’

response = o.sendMessage(bytes(message, encoding=‘utf-8’))
print(response)

And the stack trace:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “demo.py”, line 20, in
response = o.sendMessage(bytes(message, encoding=‘utf-8’))
File “/usr/local/lib/python3.7/dist-packages/Hologram/CustomCloud.py”, line 78, in sendMessage
resultbuf = self.network.send_message(message)

Ah I thought this was for sending. I can open a task for this on the github. Though if you are retrieving websites the modem based socket method probably isn’t as safe as just standing up a PPP connection and grabbing the site that way.

OK. Thanks for the reply and recommendation.
