I'm trying to call a VB.Net application that is not part of the current solution. How can I achieve this? Currently, I've tried both of these with no success:

Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_HOST") & "remaing URL Path"
Request.UserHostName & "remaing URL Path"

this is a webservice you're after by looks of it, not a separate exe, on the server?
for web service, not sure if this helps

No, I'm simply trying to call a webpage (.aspx) located in another solution (different virtual directory on the server).

ok, not really an asp bod, but have done some, and webservices
so it's to put the html generated into the current page? or to call specific functions?
if it's specific functions, might be best moving functions into separate file and using an include on both pages to get same functions in both ( -

if it's to get html into current page I've seen stuff like <!--#include file="insertthisfile.html" --> to get existing html, but not generated from one page to another, but looks like it's done with getContent (
set Http = server.CreateObject("Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP.3.0")
Http.Open "GET", url, False
Dim resptext
resptext = Http.ResponseText
response.write (resptext)
Set Http = nothing
