Hi,
I'm converting a communication software which uses a mcomm control and connects to HP3000 main frame using VB 6. I can successfully use the WRQ reflection object to connect and download files from HP. But in order for us Deploy the Communication software we have to get Reflection license for every client. We have about 3500 clients and this will be expensive. Is there another method or control I can purchase to connect where I only have to pay for the development license.

Can these files be downloaded to a FTP site and your clients connect to this site?

Yes, We are working on putting our main frame on a public domain. I don't know if I really want to use FTP commands through DOS, I need to be able get a status back from the main frame after I issue a command. Right now I'm using Reflection via telnet. If I could use a similar application, i.e.  an active x control.


Thanks

Are the files downloaded with Reflection are statics or are they built when a client request them?

If the files are statics, copy them all to a standard FTP site.

If the files are dynamic, create a ASP page that will connect to the mainframe using Reflection and the page will also return the file to the client.

Yes, I did some more research and found a control which I downloaded trial version recently. It's called SocketWrench and SocketTools from socketwrench.com (Catalyst Development). go ahead and check it out.
Your answer was good too, but may not for our project. Don't worry, I'll still give you the point.
