remote reference to a dll on backend server from a virtual website
Posted on 2008-06-13
I have my website hosted on a virtual website on IIS to which I don't have access to except deploying code to my doc root.
My project requires having the data access layer in a back-end 2003 server as a dll. Since I don't have exclusive use of the web server, I cannot map a drive to reference the path to the dll on remote server. How do I access the back-end dll, if the path to back end server looks like this //xxxx/e$/DataLayer/bin/Debug/DataLayer.dll ?
I have Oracle client installed on local machine where I'm developing. There is none on the Web Server. But it is installed on the back end server. I don't want any issues when I deploy my code to the web server and invoke the back-end data layer from web server.
I'd appreciate your help.
