Remote W95 access to SCO OSR

I have SCO OSR 5.0.4 Enterprise and Merge 4.0 on my computer at the office. I wish to access a Win95 GUI program - Intuit's Quicken99, running under Merge 4.0 on this computer from my home, where I run W95.
Any ideas?

If it's running under merge, you could put an X Windows server on your home computer and actually run it on your SCO box back to home.  It would be pretty slow if running over a modem, though.

Another possibility is to keep only the data on the SCO box and run Quicken on your home machine, but accessing the data over the network.  The easiest way to do this is to run software on the SCO box that lets it talk the Win file-sharing protocols.  SCO sells such software, but you could also use SAMBA (www.samba.org), which works just as well and is free.
