I write a lot of sharepoint code to do administration functions. Almost all of this is done in Visual Studio and then I compile the app. The apps then run locally on one of the web front ends.
Recently we are engaged with a vendor who is providing hosted sharepoint and I no longer have access to a web front end to run my apps. I normally use a call like new spsite("http://mysite/
") to create an spsite object. However, I don't think this works unless the program is running on one of the web front ends. Is there a way to still use my existing code but have it interact with a hosted farm? Is there a way to create an spsite object when you don't have local access to a web front end?
