Drupal or no CMS?

Hi all,
I need some advise how to proceed with my project.

use cron without curl, wget, or lynx

I cannot use wget, curl, or lynx to invoke cron because of a firewall that blocks the loopback (crontab on same server as apache). On Drupal 7 I could use this in my crontab:

But Drupal 8 does does not have this file and uses a long hash. How can I do it? Thanks!!

I want to see
ABC corp-FX 9003
ABC corp-FD 9103
