Requires: Internet Toolkit. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.

The LabVIEW Internet Toolkit provides you with the ability to incorporate Internet capabilities into VIs. You can use LabVIEW to build CGI programs and URLs, send and receive data using the Telnet protocol, store and retrieve files from FTP servers, publish VIs to the Web, and remotely control VIs from a Web browser.

Note  The Internet Toolkit includes the G Web Server for backward compatibility. National Instruments recommends you use the LabVIEW Web Server to run VIs on the Web.

Use the Internet Toolkit VIs to view and control VIs from a Web browser, incorporate access control and security in servers, create CGI applications, send files or raw data to an FTP server, and convert VIs into Internet-ready applications.

The VIs on this palette can return FTP error codes and HTTP error codes.
