With V4R4 you can use DDM over TCP/IP.  I've always liked the ability to use 
data on another system by just creating and object on my system and telling 
that object where to look for the real one.  Kind of magic the way it would 
establish a connection whenever the object was accessed.

Anyway, now we have PC servers everywhere and TCP/IP all over the place and 
the need to look at and update data on PCs from the /400 and vice versa and I 
was wondering - Is there anything like DDM for PC to /400 file sharing? Any 
sort of object I could create on a PC and then point to with a CRTDDMF-like 
statement?

I know about (and am using) file transfer, ODBC, shared folders, ftp, ifs, 
QNetWare, NetServer, etc. and I don't mean those things.  I mean doing 
something like creating an Access database on the file server and telling the 
/400 "There it is, update it".

I don't think that there is such a thing because Microsoft is not capable of 
the level of sophistication required, but it never hurts to ask.  TIA, Lance
