What do I need to do to let the new software I developed work on a network?

I just completed a project written in BCB4. I know nothing about how to install this software on a WAN network. What other software do I need to complete the backend on the server so that I can communicate with the server? Where can I get detail info on what I need and how to do this?

What networking protocol did you use when writing your program?

You really don't install software on a WAN, unless you are developing networking software.  You install software on computers and if the software is written to use networking protocols, you can use the software over a network.  

Unless you develop you software to directly use layer 2 protocols (Token Ring, ATM, Ethernet, Frame Relay, SDLC, HDLC) or a non-routable layer 3 protocols (like NETBUIE)  it does not matter what type of network is in use, LAN, WAN, MAN, CAN as most layer 3 protocols support all types of networks.
