Because the Internet is a large TCP/IP network, you can design an Internet configuration using any of our networking or data access technologies. The Web runtime and CGI technologies were designed for communicating with Web browsers, but you can use our standard technologies to access applications and data across the Internet outside of the World Wide Web.
The procedures for using these technologies on the Internet are not much different from the procedures outlined in the product user's guides for local- and wide-area networks (LANs and WANs). Special Internet considerations are discussed in this chapter.
Please note that when accessing extend products on remote servers via the Internet or a virtual private network, products or technologies from third-party vendors such as Microsoft may be invoked. Carefully review any license agreements from these third-party vendors before proceeding with the remote connection.
