The Question is:
We need to download a file using SHTTP on OpenVMS in a batch environment
(through a proxy server). Can you recommend any methods of accomplishing this?
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard would tend to use scp, sftp or similar, and would
not initially choose SHTTP. (You will want to confirm SHTTP use and
not some other protocol, of course.)
The OpenVMS Wizard has no particular recommendations for a text-oriented
SHTTP web browser -- you may be able to locate a Lynx web browser with
SHTTP support, or similar. SSL or stunnel-based tunneling may provide
an option, as might an external firewall with VPN tunneling capabilities.
TCP/IP Services V5.4 adds OpenSSL, SSH, SFTP, SCP, SRCP, SPOP and
related. Please see the release documentation for details on these
and other features.
