When I try to connect to a remote datamodule i am getting an error message 'Catastropic failure'. What does it mean?.  I am not getting this error message occassionally.

Bad little Delphi!

That is a standard OLE / COM error message, not a delphi one. Maybe you can search MSDN for that.

It's OLE/COMs way of saying you have an access violation.  Somewhere there was a bad pointer.  Now whether that's your fault or the fault of the application you're interacting with depends on the context.  You don't mention where this problem occurred.  If it was in connecting to ADO, you may wish to consult the Borland website.  They have a fix to the ADO components where this error was occurring at odd points.
