First, and most urgently, turn OFF your caps lock! Nobody likes shouting.

Next, the hardware is largely irrelevant since this is really a software issue.

It's  a while since I played with Clipper, but I remember it as being a DOS-based solution. If this is the case, then you can use telnet to connect to the head office server, and run it that way. Of course, you have to start the telnet server before this works; then run "telnet <servername>" from the sub-office, and log in using the usual Windows username & password; then run the Clipper app.
