REMOTE.NOD

 

The Shopkeeper was designed to run off local hard drives and local area

networks of 10 to 100 megabits per second so a 64kilobits per second (or

128k or 384k) ISDN or DSL data link is not going to come close to the

normal speed. However, with these modifications you can at least ensure

that the executable program is accessed directly off the remote computer's

own hard drive and that only the server data is accessed over the data line.

 

*) Note that both semi-colons and colons are used below

 

*) Copy the \COMPLINK.JS folder from the server to the remote computer's

C:\COMPLINK.JS folder

 

*) Copy the \COMPLINK.JS\PRO folder from the server to the remote

computer's

C:\COMPLINK.JS\PRO folder

 

*) Make sure the remote computer does NOT have a C:\COMPLINK.JS\DATA.JS

folder (only the server should have this data folder to avoid mixups.)

 

*) Copy the file CONFIG.FP from the \COMPLINK.JS\PRO directory to the root

of the C: drive on the remote computer. i.e. copy it to C:\CONFIG.FP

 

*) Edit the C:\CONFIG.FP on the remote computer and

Add (near the top) the line: TMPFILES=C:\

Change the config.fp line: RESOURCE=\COMPLINK.JS\PRO\FOXUSER.DBF

to: RESOURCE=C:\COMPLINK.JS\PRO\FOXUSER.DBF

 

*) Change the C:\CONFIG.FP line: PATH = \COMPLINK.JS\PRO;\COMPLINK.JS

to: PATH = C:\COMPLINK.JS\PRO;C\COMPLINK.JS

 

*) Change the C:\CONFIG.FP line: PATH = \COMPLINK.JS\PRO;\COMPLINK.JS

to: PATH = C:\COMPLINK.JS\PRO;C\COMPLINK.JS

 

*) Add to the C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT on the remote computer the line

SET JSPATH=C:\COMPLINK.JS\PRO;\C:\COMPLINK.JS

 

*) Then after you next reboot (so the SET statement kicks in)

 

*) Create a shortcut icon with the CMDLINE set to:

C:\COMPLINK.JS\FOXR.EXE  -CC:\CONFIG.FP -t +X

and the WORKING set to the server's data folder on the mapped network drive

(probably F:\COMPLINK.JS\DATA.JS)
