    From Frank@VERT to All on Tue Jul 19 18:24:00 2005
    I would like to call an HTML script from the Synchronet login menu. I'll be
    running this script on the BBS computer so calling it will be no big issue,
    my question is.

    I need this script to be able to acces .jpg files on a second computer in my
    home network. This second computer has a home weather station running on it
    and it produces some really nice .jpg files of all the gauges for the
    weather station. It makes a really nice web page. Due to restrictions on
    the firewall for my router all HTML script MUST be run from the BBS
    machine. This leaves my script running on one machine and the files I need
    it to call on another. Can what I am trying to do be done with HTML?

    Thanx in advance for any help offered
    Frank

    So let the script on bbsmachine.com generate code with <img> tags that reference the images on othermachine.com for the graphics.

    but then he'd be running 2 servers. just use an apache alias directive and a hardlink in linux or a networked map drive in windows.

    alias can exist outside of docroot :) and it's supported in all levels that are useful; virtualhost, etc.

    I'm sorry -- I assumed that both machines were running a web-server of
    some tyoe. My bad.

    alias can exist outside of docroot :) and it's supported in all levels that useful; virtualhost, etc.

    If the machine with the files will not serve them via HTTP then he will
    have to access the files from his network, over the LAN, or move/copy them from one machine to the next. An SMB/NFS share should work. If that
    isn't possible, then maybe he could 'scp' the files from one machine to
    the other.
