Getting files from internet using HTTP

Hi! I want to use some variable of Automation type to get text files from the web. In this connection I have a couple of questions: 1. Which automation server should I use? All Navision client are installed on Windows 2000 and Windows XP Professional. 2. Where can I find documentation on this Automation server? Could you please give me code examples? Thanks in advance.

You need to generate a HTTP Header which you send to the web server via a Socket Connection (Navision SDK). I have never tried it this way, but I did it the other way round (waiting for incoming HTTP requests and sending a HTML page back. that worked quite well.

There are several free active x controls that can help you do this task. Specifically you can also use microsoft winsock control to GET a web page. Check out the socket wrench products as well, it’s the one I settled on. -john
