Apache to query tac_plus
is it possible to quiery the tac_pwd from web page through apache to let user input his password then user could send it to me as encrypted by mail or what ever.
currently i should open the terminal and query tac_pwd manually in front of user.
apache already running on my server and configured to view log files.
my system is ubuntu 10.04.
So, the answer to your question about whether it's possible to call tac_pwd from a webpage is "yes, it is possible". You would do it by writing a PHP page.
thanks alot for your reply, sorry if i was not clear. it's as simple you summarize, i need to execute an application from web so users could
open the page and get application executed then (Manually will send the password via email.
i'm new to programming language, could you please help me to write this script and lead me to where to place it.
i would appreciate any help.
It performs the 'ls' command, and puts the results on the screen. Checking Google is always a good first step.
Where you put it, is up to you...and that will depend on how you set up your web server. You can place it in your webserver documentroot, but without knowing how you have it set up, we can't say.
thanks for your continues support,
actually the examples i found on the internet and share by my friends most about php script that will return output of
some commands, my case is different i need the php to to first read the execute the application internally within the server and output
it's like that
1-user will open the php link.
2-php will invoke the application on the server.
3-the application it self will generate read and required user input.
4-php will request read from user.
5-send read back to server application.
6-application will generate the output and php will echo it back to user.
User:~$ telnet x.x.x.x
Connected to x.x.x.x.
AAA:~$ tac_pwd ---> user excute the application
Password to be encrypted: password -> application request input.
y/d6sWyZXc5NU -> application echo output.
i know it's kind of hedeck and thanks for your help.
again sorry for unclear example, this telnet just to show exactly what i need to be done by php.
i'm not using telnet for management.
my case is that this application reside on the server, i need the php to act on the middle of the user and server tac_pwd application.
i need the php to excute the tac_pwd which will prompt user for password to be encrypted then it will pass the input request to user.
then php will send back the user input to tac_pwd to generate the needed output.
the problem when i use the php directly to excute the command it will work but will generate it's own password without user input.
could you please help on this please.
Like I said in my first reply, write a web page to take input from the user, then pass that input to the command. Before we can help with anything, you will need to write some code for us to help you WITH.
