    Is it possible to start and stop a VB Prog remotely


    Is it possible to start and stop a VB Prog remotely. I would like to be able
    to do this to a VB prog that is sat on one of our servers but do not know
    where to start with this. Any help would be appreciated

    How do you start and stop it currently? Do you have control over its
    source code? Perhaps you could incorporate a publicly creatable COM/DCOM
    class you could use to control it? What sort of protocol and security
    constraints do you need to consider? If all else fails, there's always
    NetDDE, a disgracefully underrated technology. Like Jet, used properly,
    it is too easy to code, maintain, and administer, so no wonder MSFT is
    intent upon killing them.
