If you want a very simple text-based web browser in order to test responses on an AIX server and don’t want to waste time and bandwidth using Firefox – if it exists – and an X-session, use “Lynx”, Here are the steps in brief:
- Download the RPM from IBM’s AIX Linux Toolbox. (search for “lynx”, it’s less than 1 MB in size)
- Install it “rpm -ivh package_name.rpm“
- Run it using “lynx url“, e.g. “lynx http://www.yahoo.com”
Is there an rpm of lynx built with https support? This default one does not support https web sites. I don’t have a compiler to rebuild the source with https support.
have no idea, sorry about that
