Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DISTRIBUTING BULLETINS TO EXTERNAL COMPUTERS ACCESSING WIDE AREA COMPUTER NETWORKS
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE DISTRIBUTION DE COMMUNIQUES A DES ORDINATEURS EXTERIEURS AYANT ACCES A DES RESEAUX INFORMATIQUES ETENDUS
Abstract
(EN)
A network access system (105) is provided for distributing bulletins, such as advertisements, to external computers (103) accessing a wide area computer network (100). The network access system (105) connects the external computers (103) to the wide area computer network (100), and sends bulletins with information being transmitted from remote information servers (101) within the wide area computer network (100) to the external computers (103). A bulletin server (201) within the network access system (105) stores a plurality of bulletins to be transmitted to the external computers (103), determines whether to send a bulletin with the information being transmitted, determines what bulletins to transmit to the external computers (103), and sends the bulletins with the information being transmitted from the remote information servers (101) to the external computers (103). Upon receipt of a bulletin, the external computers (103) may display the bulletins as part of the received information, may display the bulletins before allowing the user to view the received information, or may display the bulletins as part of a separate window.
(FR)
L'invention a trait à un système d'accès au réseau (105) destiné à la distribution de communiqués, des annonces par exemple, à des ordinateurs extérieurs (103) ayant accès à un réseau étendu (100). Ce système d'accès (105) connecte les ordinateurs extérieurs (103) à un réseau étendu (100) et envoie des communiqués porteurs d'information en cours de transmission en provenance de serveurs d'information à distance (101) au sein du réseau étendu (100) aux ordinateurs extérieurs (103). Un serveur de communiqués (201) dans le système d'accès au réseau (105) stocke une pluralité de communiqués à transmettre aux ordinateurs extérieurs (103), décide de l'envoi d'un communiqué porteur d'information en cours de transmission, décide quels communiqués envoyer aux ordinateurs extérieurs (103) et envoie les communiqués porteurs d'information en cours de transmission en provenance des serveurs d'information à distance (101) aux ordinateurs extérieurs (103). A réception d'un communiqué, les ordinateurs extérieurs (103) peuvent afficher les communiqués dans le cadre de l'information reçue, les afficher avant de laisser l'utilisateur prendre connaissance de l'information reçue ou encore les afficher dans le cadre d'une fenêtre séparée.
