Programming IE macros

  1. Hello,

    I wanted to see if anyone had an idea as to the most suitable tool required to program a basic macro such as this:

    * Click on a Desktop icon
    * this opens a pre-defined number of IE 6.0 browser windows (IE 6.0 is the only browser my company has certified at this time)
    * each window navigates to a specific site automatically
    * macro pauses and then uses credentials to log in to the four windows

    Basically, I am trying to log into many load balancing devices at a time thru web-based JAVA GUIs, as changes on these devices are often requested at a moments notice and the process of logging into them all is time consuming.

    This seems as if it would be very simple to do programmatically, I just don't know where to begin.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Easier approach:

    Create a HTML FrameSet with four subframes
    Each frame contains a description of the target 'attachment'
    Each frame contains a LINK
    with target="_new" to open a fresh window
    and a url to the specific login
    Place the AttachmentCTL.html anywhere you need such access and the desktop
    user will still need to login per your infrastructure design.
