>> USTCP cgiSuite <<

cgiSuite Features Overview:

Overall Administration (Administration Common Module):

  • Management via a singular integrated Administrative User Interface. No more need to learn multiple administrative URLs, deal with different screens in different applications with no consistency in the user interface, remember multiple usernames and passwords, or do everything yourself.
  • Delegate tasks. Managing the website no longer has to rest entirely on the Webmaster's shoulders! Individual users may be defined with customized permissions. Allow your helpers as much or as little access as you deem necessary.
  • A single common security interface. Minimize the multiplying of potential security risks often introduced when installing multiple CGI scripts from multiple authors.
  • Powerful CGI Anti-Hijacking features and design implementations are incorporated into these scripts. Prevent unwanted third party websites from using your CGI applications and server resources.
  • Simplified installation! Most users will only need to edit the very first line of a few of the scripts to reflect the location of the Perl interpreter on their web server, there is no need to edit variables within the scripts, or any editing beyond the very first line period (NT users can usually skip this step entirely!). All configuration is done via a web based interface the first time you run the CGI script. Nearly every configuration value will be automatically filled in for you by our intelligent auto-configurator! Many users successfully complete configuration without even referring to the manual!
  • Protection against brute force hacking of usernames and passwords.  If a given username accumulates more than 20 consecutive failed login attempts, the account is automatically suspended until six hours without any activity have elapsed. This makes brute force approaches nearly impossible. (Please remember that no matter how much security we build into our scripts, they can never be any more secure than the configuration of your web server!)
  • Powerful logging features. Security (user logins), Activity (every action a user takes), and Error logs are maintained by this suite.

Requirements:

  • Unix or NT based Web Server (tested with Apache under Linux and FreeBSD, and MS IIS 3.0 & 4.0 under NT).
  • Perl 5.003 or better installed on server.
  • CGI access on your web server.
  • Read/Write/Execute (UNIX) or "CHANGE" (NT) Directory Permissions on your CGI-BIN or CGI-LOCAL directory.
  • For Administration: A frames-capable browser (Netscape 2.0+, Internet Explorer 3.0+, AOL 3.0+).

Feedback Form Add-On Module:

  • If you can design an HTML form, you now have the power to implement very powerful feedback handling features with ease!
  • Simplifies HTML Form design. Many feedback form handlers require that you either code all of their parameters (e.g. the send to email address, etc.) with hidden <input> tags in your form or otherwise define special configuration files to be uploaded to your web server.  Our suite only requires you to provide a hidden input tag containing the proper feedback form definition 'name' to use to process the request.  No need to try defining required fields and other actions via hidden tags ever again!
  • Feedback handling options are defined by "Form Definition" names, configure as many different form handlers as you need.
  • All feedback handling options are visible at once on a single definition screen. There are four basic parts, only one of which is required: 1) the submission confirmation page (required), 2) email forwarding of the submission information (optional), 3) database storage of the submission information (optional), and 4) an auto-response message to send immediately to the visitor who made the submission (optional). Utilize any combination that fits your particular needs and skip the parts which do not apply to your given situation.
  • Field Completion Validation - Allows you to specify (AND and OR) which fields must be filled out and prompts the user with an error message of your choice if they forget to complete a field.
  • Ever want to personalize an auto-response message or the submission confirmation page with information submitted by your visitor? Well, we allow such integration with ease! We also have a host of built-in variables (date and time formats) available for your use along with access to all environment variables supplied by your web server (e.g. REMOTE_ADDR, the visitor's remote IP address).
  • No dependency on Sendmail or other external mail transport applications! Many feedback handlers require external applications to process email transactions, we have built SMTP support directly into our product permitting you to bypass those headaches. (Note: If your provider requires you to use Sendmail and does not permit SMTP server access, don't worry, we've built an override feature into our product as well!)
  • When forwarding submission information to your email account, you can define the format the information will be provided to you! No need to look at messy "Name=John Doe" type lines in your email!
  • Get your message out to your visitors immediately, provide an immediate auto-response to any feedback they provide! You can define a templated message to be automatically sent to your visitor! You can personalize the message too (e.g. get their name from form fields they submitted).
  • Store feedback submissions in a searchable comma-separated database file for later searching or for importing into other applications at a later date!
  • Automatic Tracking Numbers are assigned to every feedback response! Combined with the database search features this can be a very powerful incident reporting system!
  • Automatically Generates HTML Source Code to be included in your Web page.  This simplifies integrating this application with your forms and allows you to simply Cut 'N' Paste the generated source into your document for final editing.

Requirements:

  • USTCP™ cgiSuite™ Administration Module (Included with Starter Kits).
  • Unix or NT based Web Server (tested with Apache under Linux and FreeBSD, and MS IIS 3.0 & 4.0 under NT).
  • Perl 5.003 or better installed on server.
  • CGI access on your web server.
  • Read/Write/Execute (UNIX) or "CHANGE" (NT) Directory Permissions on your CGI-BIN or CGI-LOCAL directory.
  • For Administration: A frames-capable browser (Netscape 2.0+, Internet Explorer 3.0+, AOL 3.0+).
  • For Email: Access to an SMTP server or access to Sendmail client on the local server.

Redirector Add-On Module:

  • Makes adding drop-down directory boxes to your site a breeze!
  • Ideal design for providing an alternative means of navigating your site (e.g. "Where would you like to go?" and a list of selections). Since only the keyword needs to be included in the HTML forms code, you eliminate the need to enter long URLs for each page. You also reduce the risk of introducing typos.
  • Because all URLs are defined in the administration area rather than in the HTML code, attempts by third parties to hijack your redirection script for use on their own website will invariably prove futile.
  • Built-in support for dynamic self-creation of drop-down directory code when coupled with an SSI capable web server (typically *.shtml or *.stm type files). This permits the web master to simply include a static link to the redirector script in all desired web pages and the script will do the work of creating the necessary form code. Adding, removing, and updating links then becomes a breeze - update once in the administration section and the changes can be automatically incorporated into your entire website! This can save countless hours when updating a site!
  • Designed for overall ease of use, no complicated installation and the configuration of redirection groupings is extraordinarily simple!
  • When used in SSI generation mode, you even have the option to include a simple JavaScript application that will automatically direct visitors to their newly chosen destination without their needing to click the "Go!" button and without making a second call to your Web server!  Efficiency!
  • Automatically Generates HTML Source Code to be included in your Web page.  This simplifies integrating this application with your Web pages and allows you to simply Cut 'N' Paste the generated source into your document for final editing.
