Fall-thru Path for HTTP


It is possible to include HTML tags within your DDS that cause the browser to display a link, an image, or another object on the screen with your 5250 data. This includes Webulator/400 menu images, background images, as well as the keyboard plugin. These objects can provide information, increase ease-of-use, and make your Webulator screen more attractive. They are served to the browser by an HTTP server that is separate from Webulator/400 - usually either Web Server/400 or one of the IBM Internet Connection Servers. The Fall-thru Path for HTTP value is used to assist Webulator/400 in redirecting the request for these objects to that server for them to be served via HTTP (not secure). This value is a URL path that points to an HTTP server. In the case of Web Server/400, this might contain www.servername.com. The Fall-thru Path for SSL value is also used by Webulator/400 to redirect requests for objects that are to be served securely via SSL.
