Access URLs

To access Archive Agent, you need to send an HTTP request following a specific format. The format of the URLs has been standardized, so that you can write client software without knowing anything about the architecture of the archive agent server. The URLs have been designed so that it is possible to develop agents in any web application technology.

A typical URL for an archive agent looks like this:

http://servername/ArchiveAgent/ArchiveAgent.dll/<Command>

The <Command> part is replaced by the appropriate command the client wants to execute. Additional parameters
are passed on the query line.

A URL for an archive agent implementation in ASP.NET can look like this:

http://servername/ArchiveAgent.aspx/<Command>

To access the archive agent interface for an archive in FotoWeb, use this URL:

/fotoweb/fwbin/fotoweb_isapi.dll/ArchiveAgent/5000/<Command>

In the URL above, we access the agent for the archive with id 5000. To access another archive, replace this part with the name or id of another archive.
