How to duplicate a aspx page and make it work on other server?

P: 3
Hi,

I am helping my friend build a small website for his ca firm and he wanted a tax calculator page in his side. he referred me to this site saying that he would like to have something similar on his page to.
The page he referred to is this http://law.incometaxindia.gov.in/DIT/Xtras/taxcalc.aspx

Now how can i duplicate the same page coz mere copying the page and then uploading it back with a .aspx extension doesnt make it work.

I want the calculation to work. As far as i understand this page goes back to a tax file where the calculation part is done.
So how can i replicate this back on to my page or
can i make it work just by linking it to the server where the calculation part is done and the result shown in my page??

My apologies if i wasn't clear, i have very little knowledge abt asp/aspx.

You would have to gain access to the aspx file, the code behind for that file, and any external server-side resources that the page uses.

Once you have access to this, you can include it into your own project and deploy it.

If you cannot gain access to these components, then you will have to start from scratch and develop the website from the ground up.

Thanks for the response,
Now i dont have access to that server, i need the calculator that is with the link above. Is there a way in which i could add a page in my server linking the above mentioned page. so that when someone does the calculation in my page they get a response back without going to that other page. What i basically meant is that, can i keep my visitors and also do the calculation on my site itself with the help of the code in that server.

I hope i made myself clear.

Thanks

You may link the page above you mentioned using <iframe src="the address" width="800px" height="500px"></iframe> in your page to calculate the calculation there.

Hope it's work for you.

thanks ariful,

But the issue is i dont want any reference of that site. i just wann the calculation done.
can you guide me on how to get the same calculation on my page.
The method you suggested would still leave a link to that site.

is there a way to ensure that just the calculation is done there and result in my page.

Thanks

Welcome Jazzyguy.

If you like to link the calculation section or page of that site, you need to know the name of the calculation page and method to which given data are send to calculate and reply the result as @Frinavale said. or you may have to code your own calculation for your site. if you like to code then you have to know the country income tax policy to calculate income tax.

Thanks

1- asp is not the same as aspx (asp.net). That is why we have two different forums for these. In the future, please post aspx questions in the asp.net forum

2- both asp and asp.net use code that runs on the server and is never sent to the end user. So there is no way to copy a page without getting access to the files the server uses to generate that page. The best you could do is try to reverse-engineer it. Sorry.
