NT server 4, IIS 4, Front Page 98.  Want to download a weather page for our city once a day and have a link on the intranet for the users to access.  We don't want the users browsers to access outside the intranet for this information.  Also don't want to have to manually do this download everyday.  Is this possible?  If so how?

You can write a small VB program using will download the the html page (using the INET control) to some place on your hard drive (the html file on the intranet).  You can also put this program in the startup folder so that it is the first thing done each day when windows starts up.  If the Server is on all the timer then you can put a timer control on the form and periodically check to see if a new day has happened and if so download the HTML page.

One thing I forgot when using the INET control use the Inet.Execute syntax (then fill in the parameter as they pertain to the project)
