I have several computers on a local area network. I have an xojo database on one that I would like to programmatically access and update from any computer. I can’t seem to work out how to address the file without going through the manual APPLE connection process. Is this possible? If so, help with the addressing would be appreciated
I did mean an SQLite database file on one of the computers.
Norman, Can I mount another computer’s volume containing the db file on a computer programmatically? That is when I open a program on one computer is there a way the program can mount the db resident on another computer?
Dave, It sounds as if your previous method is what I may be seeking. One computer with the db is powered always. Others are on and off. When I boot up and start the program that uses the db, I would like to automatically access the ‘on’ computer with the db. Currently, everything works well but I would like to be able to eliminate the manual network signup process each time.
You can use UDP socket to ‘discover’ services. So your server will listen the a request and your client broadcasts a ‘ping’ and the server responds. This way the client then lists the machines that responded to the ping.
