DCOM, no domain, named IP address
Posted on 2003-02-20
I'm trying to set up a DCOM arrangement between two computers that have a TCP/IP link but have no domain server, so there is no "network neighbourhood". I have followed all the usual steps: DCOMcnfg on the server, Clireg32 on the client, with an IP address rather than a named machine as the /s parameter. It's not working though, which I expected, but I need to get some idea how to get around it. Now, I know DCOM can work over an internet, so there must be a way of getting it to function without having to add specified users to the share permissions of the drive where the server component sits.
