  • You then place your command into that field as shown below:

CHGVAR &CMD VALUE("Start http:\\IP address\My webpage.asp?NSN=" *CAT &VARIABLE *CAT " *NO PAUSE"

  • When you have done that, you will then run the command below:


In case that fails to work then I will refer you to the website to have a look:
