    connecting to a different host

    Is there anyway to connect to a given host from a form and do all the processing of information and calculations at that host and then display the results on the clients computer? I was thinking of a socket connection but I don't know if that would work well. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    just point the action in the form to the other host then the results would automatically go to the client.

    I don't think i quite understand what you are trying to do...maybe some further explaination?

    Arrow Host Transfer

    Basically, I have a form with some information on it, it's got a drop down box with 2 hosts listed. Depending on which host they select I have to bring the results over to that host, which I think I know how to do to, except I have an other file which has queires that have to be run on the site that the user selects and display the result. This is where I'm having problems, does the result page have to be dynamically created on the site or is there a way around it.
    Thanks for your help.
