Tip of the Day
Language: Visual FoxPro
Expertise: Beginner
Apr 8, 1999

Client/Server

Question:
I have a Visual FoxPro 5.0a application running on Windows NT 4.0 workstation on all machines. Most of the stores have at least two workstations using peer-to-peer networking. The data is stored in local tables and sent up via RAS to a SQL server 7.0 database. Workstation "A" has a modem attached to it; workstation "B" does not. Workstation "B" would like to make a request to workstation "A" to dial up remotely to retrieve a subset of data using remote views.

Answer:
This is more of a networking question than a FoxPro question.

I believe that you need to designate the modem on workstation A as shared. Then workstation B should be able to use it.
