[archive] AcuGt Automation Controller

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 24 March 2003]

Im am running IIS web server and I am trying to use the ACUGT
Automation controller to call a cobol object with VBScript from
my html page, it all runs perfectly on the webserver, but
soon as I try to run from another machine, it does not work, it looks like the cobol program is trying to run locally and not on the
web server, Is there some way to specify that the program must
run on the web server and not the local client browser, another thing is the security settings which I have to set to very low for all this to work, any ideas

You should be using server side ASP code and not client side vbScript. The client side vbScript will always cause the runtime to try and execute on the client unless you specify the script to runat=server

Hi Dan
Thanks for the info I have done what you suggested but we are not very clued up on asp , what seems to happen now is that everything runs on the server and the display detail does not come back to the browser, I have attahed an example of what I am trying to do.

Ian,
Try changing your input field HTML code to something like this:


This should insert the value of variable PEMPKEY1 into the HTML so that the browser can use it. You would do the same thing for the other input fields.
