OpenVMS (web) serving text files?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a requirement to provide URL links to ascii text files from NT web
 server  to Alpha server.
I wanted to know if any software is available
to recognize the alphaserver as a node to provide the link.

The Answer is :

  Your question is quite terse, and the OpenVMS Wizard does not have
  a clear understanding of the particular question that you seek to
  have answered.
  OpenVMS can and does have various web servers available, and these
  web servers can be configured to provide complete web pages or
  constituent components of web pages served by other web servers.
  For instance, the Windows NT server can serve the page, but can
  retrieve embedded GIFs stored on the OpenVMS system, and can also
  provide links to web pages served from the OpenVMS system.  These
  web servers can also serve up text files, along with HTML and other
  file formats.
  It is also quite possible to create tools which interface source
  code and document control systems or other similar environments
  directly to web servers (via CGI or API or otherwise), or even
  interface the tools directly to the (rather simple) http interface.
