Hi all,

I have a requirement. In my office there is a web application connected to 5 different machines including Windows 2000 and NT OS. I have a web command that needs to be run on all these 5 machines everyday at a speciified time (say midnight 1:30am) from the web server. The command is as follows

http://10.21.11.14/cgi-bin/io/output.cgi?action=102 (for machine 1)
http://10.21.11.15/cgi-bin/io/output.cgi?action=102 (for machine 2) ...etc

What i am planning to do is to create a .BAT file having these codes and run it using DOS AT commands? Is there any other way to accomplish this. I want this action to be done automatically... Pls help.

You could use Windows Scheduler - it can be found under Programs - Accessories - System Tools.

Add a schedule, i,e, run Internet Explorer at a certain time.

Double-click the scheule, you want to be on the Task tab.

You will see something like the following...

C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~1\IEXPLORE.EXE

..then add your bit onto the end...

C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~1\IEXPLORE.EXE http://10.21.11.14/cgi-bin/io/output.cgi?action=102 

That should do the trick.

Thank you for your reply. This is what I need. But as i told before I have to run 5 commands one after the other. Also the browser should close automatically after each command has been finished or at the end of all five commands. I have tried runnning IEXPLORE.EXE "javascript:close()" but this one is asking for a user confirmation. I dont want any user intervention on this.

Any help!!!!

I would set up a task (schedule) for each of the machines.
There is a setting within the task properties which will close the app after a certain amount of time etc.
