VB6/SQL Server application runs locally, but not from server

I have a VB6 SP6 MDAC 2.8 application talking to SQL Server.  Once I've
installed this application on my local machine I have been able to move the
..exe file to a file server and it runs just fine from there for all my local
users.  This is very handy for updating the application without having to
reinstall it on each user's machine each time.  They just use a shortcut
pointing to the file server .exe file

My problem has become that we have some users at remote locations that VPN
into our network who also want to use this application.  When it's installed
locally on their machines, or even on file servers at their locations,
everything works fine.  However, when they run the .exe off of my file
server the SQL Server connections times out on the initial connection open
after the default 30 seconds every time.  Run from their own desktops or
file servers it connects within 2 seconds every time.  This is on both
Windows 2000 and XP Pro machines.  Even when I tell the shortcut to use
their local drive for the working directory the same problem happens.

This goes against everything I've seen with server-based files for 15 years.
Once a file is loaded in the computer for execution, why does it matter
where it came from?  What "baggage" can an .exe file carry with it that will
cause it to not execute when hosted on one server, but run just fine from
the desktop or another, closer server?  The only known difference is that
the connection speed is much better when I run it locally here to that file
server.

Help.

Can Analysis Server and Report Server run on SQL Server 2000 Cluster
I have installed Analysis Server (AS) and Reporting Services (RS) on SQL Server 2000 before. Now I have been asked to install these on a failover Cluster we have. Previously I just ran the SQL Server 2000 install program off our network disk and then ran the SP4 patch to install AS. When I ran the install and chose AS there was no indication from the software that it recogned that I wanted it to install on a cluster. After it said it successfully installed the SP4 upgrade failed with a buffer overflow problem. Anyone out there know the proper procedure (url)? -- Mark D Powell -- On Aug ...

Running java client/server application in JBoss (Application Server)
Hi, Can anyone help me how to run an client/server java application in a application server like JBoss?

I would like to have something like message-driven bean, that will receive a request, and send to this ISOThread to process the request.

Server to server = Server client to server?
For a server to server connection, is the connecting server considered as a client of the accepting server or is it not?

mvBase Server application & Pervasive SQL application on Same Server
I have a project to put two different applications, in two different databases, onto a single server. I am seeking input from anyone who has attempted a similar project. One application is in mvBase 1.3.02, while the other is in Pervasive SQL. In a secondary situation, we'll have one application in mvBase 1.3.02, and another in SQL Server. Both, or all of these databases seem to grab as much free memory as they can, and not relinquish said memory back to the system resources pool. I will be closely monitoring the system wide parameters and the individual parameters of each application database, even profiling them, with a extremely lightweight, yet thorough monitoring process. Are there any good resource partiioning products out there, that do not introduce a whole bunch of significant overhead on their own, that would limit how much memory eack of these databases has access to? Operating System will be Windows 2000 Server. Appreciate any experienced input, or other general advice or suggestions, from inside, or outside "the box". Thanks! -- Regards, Scott ...
