I have recently installed Microsoft FRX onto my local computer.  I would like to connect to a remote Dynamics 4.0 database.  Is is there any procedures that can walk me through the connection steps?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In FRx, go to Company > Information.  Create a new entry in here....most of this should be pretty self explanatory, the critical settings for connecting to your data are on the System Specific Information.  This is Accounting System specific, I am not sure what system you're using...you said Dynamics 4.0, but not what flavor and I only the information for GP.
