Hi.
DELPHI 6.
I am working with databases a lot as client-server model.
Now i need to write an application to work over internet with a server situated on Web server and client on distal machine. What architecture should i use? Can i create application which will work in "bound" mode like a regular DELPHI DB application? What components should i use?
Thanks a lot.

You should be able to use sockets. Read help files on Sockets and post further questions at that point.

Listening....

This is a HUGE question to ask for 50 points.

Just as a pointer, have a look at Asta (www.astatech.com).  I've been using their software for a few months now and love it.  They have a special price going at the moment which maybe worth your while looking at.  They have good demos too (all of which work when the Delphi IDE is running)

Cheers,

Stu.

Hi fish_r63,

if your application works via TCP/IP then you have nothing special to do. Just specify IP address of server.

Igor,

Past experiences have proven that it's not that simple.  NATs/Firewalls/Proxies interfere left, right and centre.  Unless I'm doing something completely wrong, then I've always found this rather difficult (which is why I looked for a third party solution).

What components are you talking about anyway?  RDS?

Hi Stu,

I have an usual C/S application where Interbase server acessed via Internet using TCP/IP (port 3050) and from local network. It works fine excpeting transfer speed when client connected from outside of LAN.
