    activating a remote executable


    Can anyone help

    How do I activate a exicutable program on a remote network via a html page,
    is it just a case of typing the name and accessing it like you do another
    web page or a cgi script, eg
    <A HREF="http://anetwork.somewhere.com/directory1/directory2/executable">

    The program needs to be activated on the remote network via html page, to
    run on the remote network and generate scripts for a html page in a similar
    way to cgi

    can someone help?
    Thanks in advance

    Re: activating a remote executable

    You can't run a program on someone else's system without their cooperation
    (fortunately!). There are probably several ways to do that, but the easiest
    (for you) may be to have them set that program up to run as a CGI program,
    then you can use that HTML code to execute it. Note that the program needs
    to return an HTTP response, or you will get an error in your browser.
