I do not want to hard code the IP address of the HTTP server into my html page. How can I provide this value dynamically?

Are you using ASP?


<%=request.servervariables("REMOTE_HOST")%>

Why do you need that? Why don't you just use relative paths?

What would a relative path have to do with obtaining the IP address of the http server? Anyway, it is looking like this can't be done with straight html.

If you can use SSI directives in your html pages, use
<!-- #echo var="LOCAL_ADDR" -->

those two things contradict.  I provided you a way to do it dynamically, which is what you asked for.  

If you want a way to do it with NO server side scripting language, or DHTML, that will not be possible I don't think.....

I was hoping that I would not need any server-side scripting tools, but since HTP only passes static pages I guess scripting would be the only way.

So now the question becomes, does IIS provide server-side scripting (ASP) by default or will I need to install or setup additonal software in additon to IIS?

IIS5 (Windows 2000) does, for NT 4 you need to install NT Option Pack.
If you have IIS3 (Windows NT4 + SP3 or above) you may use SSI directives without any upgrade.
Open regedit, go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3SVC\Parameters
and check the following:
1. The ServerSideIncludesEnabled key exists and set to 1 (REG_DWORD)
2. The ServerSideIncludesExtension key exists and set to .stm
For enable SSI directives rename your file to .stm or change the value of a corresponding key in registry.
