NT not supporting DCOM with javareg

How can we communicate from ASP to Java component in server side using DCOM?
My Java component is running  in a separate NT server(not the one on which web server ASP installed).
DCOM is my first choice. I am trying javareg utility to build the DCOM component, but NT 4.0 will not allow to locate a DCOM component remotely(please correct me if I am wrong).

Is there any way out?

Sorry, cannot provide an answer, just a comment.

You have to register a (D)COM component locally, as far as I know.

Then, let's try to figure out how to connect to it from ASP.

Thanks robbert for the comments.
When we do the javareg it should do the the registration locally.
For DCom server side we just put the /surrogate option with javareg to access it remotely.

I work with DCOM components but I make Active X Dlls with VB.
I think it is the same so:
-> You need use to set the object as...
set var = server.createobject("dll.class") ... the dll.class must the same as it was registrated remotetly, you can see it at MTS, expanding your package and object.
-> To see methods and properties you must registrate it locally, but if you know then just the object.method is OK.
-> Set the object = Nothing in the end of the page.

With this you can work with DCOM.

puna,

there are lots of links when you search http://search.microsoft.com/us/searchms.asp for javareg /surrogate remote.
Lots of (DCOM) bugs in v 1.0, they recommend to upgrade to javareg 2.0 (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q173/7/90.ASP).
