HTML Form Output To File

Hi,

Sorry, as is said, I know just enough to be dangerous.

I have an IoT system that does not have an O/S. I would like to send a GET command to my web site to fetch data from a form on a web page on my web site.

I can create the form just fine, and read and print all the fields. What I haven't figured out from the examples I've looked at is if I can put that data into a file on my web site so that I can GET the data in the form from my IoT.

Admittedly, I'm not sure this can be done. My IoT does not have a server so I can't POST data in the other direction.

Does what I'm trying to do make any sense? Is it possible?

Always trying to learn new things. Thanks for the advice.

Dave

Addendum:

OK, So I now know I can put a file on my web site and fetch it just fine from a browser. So I believe I can do the same with a GET. That would just leave saving a file. (Spoken as if I know what the heck I'm talking about. :) )
