Hi all,

Help me out...

I am developing an intranet application in which there is a
1.CLIENT MACHINE
2.Admin server
3.App server

The requirement as follows,
On each client machine start up iam running a batch file(which is stored in
the admin server) on the client machine ,which connects the client machine to app server through the browser(IE say).And i don't want to show the browserwindow( through which client is connecting to app server) i.e, the client shouldn't see any browser opening on his system and yet capable of sending the request.(simply i want to hide the browser and yet sending the request)

One important thing is that CLIENT Machines won't have JAVA.

Thanks

So what is running on the client?
You can do server requests with JavaScript. Have a look at this article for some examples.
