Shannon, Are you the other guy who bought JWalk to use on the web? <vbg> There's a special ring in Dante's inferno for the JWalk folks. What about Webfacing or Joe Pluta's PSC/400? Mike E. "Shannon O'Donnell" To: "Web Enabling the AS400 / iSeries" <web400@xxxxxxxxxxxx> <sodonnell@xxxxxx cc: books.com> Subject: [WEB400] HTML GOTO Sent by: web400-bounces@xx drange.com 06/23/2003 01:20 PM Please respond to Web Enabling the AS400 / iSeries I'll check into securiing it another way, probably using HTTP as was suggested in a couple of different posts. I forgot about Ctrl+D doing a bookmark. I feel like I'm trying to join oil and water with this setup (i.e....the closed Jwalk activeX and every thing else...) Hopefully we will be dumping JWalk in the near future so this problem (in fact, most of the whole approach I'm currently using) will go away to be replaced by a better alternative. So...this is only an interim problem in search of a solution. Still...the thing has to work right and be secure for the six months to a year it will take to move to another paradigm. Thanks all for your great suggestions! I always learn something new from these lists!

If they happen to use MS IE, Ctrl+D is enough to add the current page to the favorites. And then good bye verification. If they happen to have ICQ running, a hit on "Send URL" is enough to send it to the world. A right click on the page and "properties" and doubleclicking the URL, Copy, Paste, ready again. I'm sure there are more methods to retrieve the page address. Ask your users in half a year... :-) > There's probably a better way to do all of this, Definitely. What's so wrong with securing the HTML page with the ActiveX by good old basic authentication in the HTTP server? It's not perfect, but most likely better and easier and definitely safer than your current approach. PS: it's very interesting to see that when users aren't working, they are selling/buying at ebay... ;-))) -- Mit freundlichen Grüssen / best regards Anton Gombkötö Organisation und Projektleitung Avenum Technologie GmbH Wien - Salzburg - Stuttgart http://www.avenum.com _______________________________________________ This is the Web Enabling the AS400 / iSeries (WEB400) mailing list To post a message email: WEB400@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/web400 or email: WEB400-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/web400. _______________________________________________ This is the Web Enabling the AS400 / iSeries (WEB400) mailing list To post a message email: WEB400@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/web400 or email: WEB400-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/web400.
