hi all

I have a project is running from Virtual private server(vps)
And contact him from the client via the following link
http://xxx.180.213.161:8889/forms/frmservlet?config=km
I have the following problem

When I have a button that calls HOST like this
HOST('"c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" "https://www.google.com/maps/place/' || :block3.text_item1 || '"');
it is working (open Internet Explorer)in the VPS, not on my client

How do I get it to work in my client

Certainly; if forms run on the application server, then HOST runs files right there - on the server.

If you installed Webutil, use CLIENT_HOST instead.

Did you mean to write this way?
CLIENT_HOST('"c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" "https://www.google.com/maps/place/' || :block3.text_item1 || '"');
and what is the Webutil

But first you have to infest your form with Webutil. Here is one of examples how to do it:

And if you have Forms below 11g, you will need to install and configure it first. There are many tutorials on how to do it.
