I assume I use this shell script as the command to launch (second value in
the val array) from my actions.xml file (in my case ReportActions.xml).  Is
there a different ActionHandler or MethodName I should use?  Currently they
are LaunchServerAppHandler and
com.tivoli.netview.client.NetViewApplet.launchServerApp, respectively.
When I do as described above I get a browser window with the text echo'd to
it as if you had ran the shell file from the command line.  I did modify
the script to read as below since the webserver I am trying to connect to
is on a different server.

#! /bin/ksh


echo "<html>"
echo "<head>"
echo "<meta http-equiv=\"Content-Type\" content=\"text/html;
echo "</head>"
echo "<script>"
echo "document.location = \"${myurl}\";"
echo "</script>"
echo "</html>"

You can configure a script like the sample below in the menu, to redirect
to another URL. In that example, on the same server where the script will
be running but on port 80 instead of the port 8080.

#! /bin/ksh

thewebhost=`hostname -s`

echo "<html>"
echo "<head>"
echo "<meta http-equiv=\"Content-Type\" content=\"text/html;
echo "</head>"
echo "<script>"
echo "document.location = \"${myurl}?Node=${node}\";"
echo "</script>"
echo "</html>"

             07/14/2005 06:05          [nv-l] Opening a web page (on a
             PM                        different server) via the web

             Please respond to

I have been able to add commands to the web menu and execute them
successfully.  (I would still like to get rid of the unnecessary web page
but that is another issue.)  I would like to now open a browser window and
connect to another webserver via a menu item on the web console.  My
NetView server is AIX, all my web console clients are Windows 2000 or XP,
the mandated browser is IE 6.  I would like to allow users to open up a
connection to my Crystal Enterprise server to view reports.
