I’d like to send
HTTP requests using the Windows Task Scheduler. In
UNIX cron jobs, I can do that using
wget http://www.google.com -O /dev/null
How to do the same on a Windows Server?
You can download a windows version of wget. Create a batch file, if you need more processing:
@echo off wget http://www.google.com -O nul rem do something else, if needed
In your Task, simply call this batch file.
