You cannot control the WEBPDF plugin with IAC, you can write a plugin to get
to the functions it provides (see the SDK - WebLink API reference). Karl
and myself started work on a product that could search a PDF for URLs and
create a form field over the top of each URL found, unfortunately it only
works in ACrobat 4.05 locally - it doesnt solve your problem, but it might
be of interest?.

That aside, using Acrobat on a web server is unfortunately a violation of
the licence agreement. Acrobat can't be run from a Network Server - check
the End User Licence Agreement for the nitty gritty.
