I'm currently studying existing ways of interacting whith CISCO ACE module in order to send configuration scripts automatically from a web page for example.So, I'd like to know which means you know to do that. It seems that I can do that whith XML (as mentioned in ACE documentation) but also whith Perl, Php, Java eventhough there isn't very much docs about it. Which other ways do you know to do that?

Thank you

Hello Samuel,

I believe that, as you pointed out, the XML API would be the recommended approach here.  It allows a standardized communication with the ACE and I'm sure you could use PHP for you webpage, and possibly PERL to create the XML commands to be sent to the ACE.  If you really don't want to use XML, then you could also get creative using EXPECT to interact directly with the ACE's CLI.

Hope this helps,

Thank you for the answer. In fact I will certainly use XML but if there are other ways I have to compare them in my study. Isn't EXPECT faster than XML?
