    Web/400 Interaction

    Howdy! Absolutely, I am not a web page expert. But, there are a couple of ways that you can build a web page to interact with the 400.

    First, you can use an ODBC driver to use embedded SQL in your web page to read/write files on the 400. If you have any experience using SQL in a web page, then this method would be pretty much exactly the same.

    Second, you can configure the web server on your 400 to work with CGI (Common Gateway Interface). I did it once, a l-o-n-g time ago. Your configuration tells the 400 that when it "sees" a URL formatted a certain way, that this is a program call. The program that is called can then write HTML to return to the browser. That is an oversimplification, but that's all I got.
