Asp.net Server side include or similiar thing - How ?
Posted on 2005-04-21
My requirement is like this. I have a page. From this page and get some values from the user and then compose a url and on the client side I make a request to the second web server(a different domain) and display a report page in a pop-up window.
But We have planned disallow direct access to the second web server from client machine, and only allow access from the first web server only, hence the current way cannot be used anymore.
What I have thought of was have a second .aspx page in the first web server and then, from the first page I compose and pass the url to the second page.Then on the server the content of the passed url is retrieved and displayed on the second page.So Second web server is accessed only from the first web server.
But still I couldn't achieve what I want. With Response.WriteFile(<url>) in the second page has also failed since the <url> shold be a relative path,but in my case I can't use relative paths since the page is from another web server.
Can't use <iframe> also since then again request is made from the client side.
I have used msxml component to somewhat similiar kind of thing(although it's not 100% the same) in ASP.
If Anybody can help me out on this, I would be really thankful.
Thanks in advance.
