Script App for SSL VPN Link
It has been about 5 or 6 years since I've done any coding, and then it was simple C coding for cleaning up y2k messes... I just started a new job and they want me to script a login to an SSL VPN appliance and I think I may be in over my head.
I have the source code for an application that runs on the command line and accepts arguments for the URL, Login Name, and Password. Right now the application launches an IE browser window after login that brings up the "launchpad", or user-interface, for the user. The launchpad is just a webpage with links to the applications available to the user. The user clicks one and it launches a JNLP file with Javaw to create an SSL tunnel solely for that application.
What I want to do, is instead of having the user select the application, I want it to be specified as a paramater of the script and have it automatically grabbed, and run.
The makers of the appliance have supplied me with a document that gives me the relative path of the launchpad, I just need to get the document, pick the application, save the file it links, then run that file with java... Easier said than done.
I copied the section of code that completes the login and attempted to modify it to pull the application URL and now I can't get the code to compile.
Rather than post a huge section of code, or a mammoth error log from the compiler, I thought I'd ask what would be the most useful, or if anyone would like to volunteer to assist via e-mail (I'll send the whole project). I'd like to figure this out so that I can modify it in the event of neccessity, but I'm running into time constraints and need to have this up and running.
I know this is kind of long, thanks in advance for any help,
