I would use http://pluta:2001 to set up the server. You may need to install the relevant software and issue the command STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN) first.

As far as how long it takes to set up, it's tied to the complexity of your desired outcome, but here is a rough guide for someone who has done it 2 optionally 3 times in the past.

(prev attempt 1) + (prev attempt 2) [+(prev attempt 3)] / (2[+1])

Sorry, sometimes I'm more of a smart ass than I need to be. It's just too much fun to resist.

If you really want your domain name to be reports.trevor.int then we have to talk about DNS servers with TLDs etc. Is that something you are doing?

Now for the dumb questions.

Lets say we want our midrange machine to have a server... let me call
it Pluta, for discussion. Lets say I want an intranet website of
http://reports.trevor.int installed and running on Pluta.

1-How long would it take a person to arrange that, saying his experience
was having already done it two or three times?
2-Would one use Operations Navigator to do it?

Wow.. how holy was that? It did not even deserve a capitalized "Holy"!

I was arguing that we could help smaller companies leverage their
midrange applications & staff by getting some of their midrange reports
onto an intranet web site, on their midrange machine. His position was

response convinced him.

We've been playing around with gwt & Eclipse.

Question is, which choir are you in and which manual page are you
reading now :-)

Wow! What great responses! The Holy War here is stopped. :) Now ee
both are in the choir and on the same page in the hymnal.

Now all the other guy and I need to do is to find some organization that
wants a couple of capable midrange guys to put a up a simple web app on
their midrange machine as a learning experience for them and us.
