Applications

Want to get an Integrated Web Server?

The integrated web server can be configured easily to host a full web site.

Or just define a redirection if a service offered by ApplicGate is out of order (e.g. based on a schedule).

The web server is also used to host customized web pages for other functions such as logon pages and shortcuts for the Remote Service Platform (RSP) functionality.

Use Cases/TechInfo

Web Server

Multiple web servers can be defined that support TLS encryption and authentication using certificates or On-Time Passwords (OTP and TOTP).

TECHINFO

Options to configure the web server:

  • The web server supports GET, POST and DELETE requests.
  • It supports directory listings. Search patterns (filters) can be applied.
  • A special view to show images with navigation can be selected.

Common Gateway Interface (CGI)

Post processing of GET and POST requests can be done easily.

Any process can be activated to process the incoming data and return a response.

TECHINFO

Options to configure CGI:

  • Configure a Filter to define which incoming request activates which program.
  • Various options to construct the arguments are available.
  • Arguments are: The received URL or the name of the posted file, the IP address of the sender and the email address of the sender according to the authentication (if any).
  • The standard input of the activated program is filled with the received http header.
  • The allowed maximum size of a posted file can be defined.
  • Various options to format the output are available.
  • The internal mail thread of ApplicGate can be activated when the program has finished. This allows sending of files immediately if an RFC file has been inserted into the pickup directory by the activated program.
  • The output will be sent back directly (must be html formatted) or can be embedded into a specified (html formatted) response file.

File Synchronization

The web server can be used to exchange files via POST and GET requests.
This can be helpful in a high security environment where no direct communication is allowed between the sender and the receiver.
The sender posts the data to the web server.
The the receiver retrieves the data from the web server and (optionally) deletes it at the web server after successful transmission.

TECHINFO

Implementation:

  • As file sender the utility httpPost (provided by ApplicGate) can be used.
  • As file receiver the utility HttpGet (provided by ApplicGate) should be used.
  • Authentication can be done via certificates.
  • Subdirectories are supported and will be created at the receiver side automatically
