Thanks for your help, Scott, but this is not some kind of practical joke.
Excuse my ignorance about the implications of your suggestions that would
require an HHTP server to be configured. That's not an option for me. I
think I explained that earlier but this thread got moved between forums and
maybe that got lost. This solution has to be as plain vanilla as possible
as I can not control such additional configuration as HTTP servers or
specialized settings in Client Access.
I appreciate your help but I guess I'm stuck with STRPCCMD.

Best Regards,

Thomas Garvey

P.S. No I didn't use 'whatever' in the URL. For the sake of clarity in
these e-mails I just copied your original line from your note.

Did you configure the HTTP server on your i? (Or whatever
happens to be?) Did you really use "whatever" as part of the URL?

Is this some kind of a practical joke?
