You can use a web browser to access the same status information that is displayed by WhiskerStatus. In order to do this, you must have configured the machine that is running WhiskerServer to host a 'status' web page (stored in \Program Files\WhiskerControl\Whisker\WhiskerStatus\Web). A suitable web server (Xitami) is distributed with Whisker; instructions for this package can be found with the installer.


Technical note: Why do we require a web server on the same machine?


In order to get the status information onto a web page, the applet hosted by that page must make a connection to the WhiskerServer. Within the  security model for Java Applets is the restriction that Java Applets may only open connections to the host from which they were loaded.
