I want to call a CGI program from a Domino "Page." I've attempted to use the following HTML on the Domino "Page" with no success. Does anyone know the method I need to use to interact with a CGI program from Domino?

<!--#exec cgi="/scripts/ssirand.exe?Region=site"-->

What happens when you try the above?
I assume the browser is treating the above as HTML properly.
Do you get an error?
Does nothing at all happen?

cheers,
Sam

The HTML statement is marked as pass-through HTML on the Domino page. When I display the page through a browser, I do not get an error. However, I do not get any response from the CGI program.

Note: the CGI program resides on a different server than the Domino server.

Hello rashaler,

The best practice is to have a copy of the cgi progran in ur domino servers cgi-bin directory. But if it is not possible then u will have to edit ur server document put the entire path for the cgi directory. This is the directory where the domino will look for the cgi programs.

Try it out, hope it will solve ur problem.
