WAN

 

 

 

The Shopkeeper was designed to run off local hard drives and local area networks of 10 to 100 megabits per second so a 128kilobits per second (or 64k) ISDN line 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 ISDN line.

 

 

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

 

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

\COMPLINK.JS\PRO folder

 

*) Make sure the remote computer does NOT have a \COMPLINK.JS\DATA.JS folder (only the server should have this data)

 

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

 

*) Copy the file CONFIG.FP from the \complink.js\pro directory to the root of the C: drive on the remote computer.

 

*) 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)
