I am a beginner.

Assuming I have complete control of the server side and my many unknown clients only have Reader:
Is it possible to
a) have their pdf submit information back to my server e.g when they fill in a form element

b) have my server send information to the client pdf (eg through getURL)?

I can't find information on this and so I am beginning to assume that adobe has made it impossible. (?)

Are there any workarounds that people have found and are willing to admit to?

Many thanks.

Anthony
