got a bunch of pdf files sitting on a AS/400 webserver (V5R2....apache i
think?), i'm using client access on the client side to initiate internet
explorer on the local machine and the mission is to view, print and email
them and try to figure out some semblance of security so the users cant see
or modify the URL.
i have been experimenting with kiosk mode on the client side and it *almost*
cuts the mustard....the problem is that in kiosk mode you only have the
adobe toolbar...which doesnt have an email button. so basically im after the
functionality of ie without the address bar......or some way for kiosk mode
to access the ie mail function.
i have also been investigating using the mailto command, but it seems for
security purposes you cant call a new mail with an attachment on a remote
mailing directly from the 400 is an option....but it isnt actually running a
SMTP server at the moment...and the powers that be arent particulary keen on
doing it because its somewhat more clunky than doing it on the client side.
the only other option i can think of is some server side cgi or perl or
something like that.....but i dont know any of them well enough.
anyone got any ideas?
