Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Can DDE "talk" to an app on different computer?

I am building an front end application for Peachtree Accounting which only supports DDE. The Peachtree application will be the server. Will I be able to use DDE in this case?

For applications that actually support DDE these days, DDE can only work on the same computer. You might want to consider building an OLE server application for the server. Computers connected to that server can talk to the OLE server over the network. The OLE server can then talk to Peachtree directly through DDE or the API, if there is one.
