Start.Process on remote system.
Posted on 2012-09-07
I am a long time IBM programmer, with a few years now of .net experience, so please forgive me if I get crossed up in terminology a bit;
We have a webserver, system 'A' and an application server, system 'B'.
A webapp on 'A' needs to run/trigger/call a vb.net console application on 'B'.
No problem there, I've been using System.Process, which works quite well except that I recently discovered that when using this technique, the application is actually executing on 'A', not 'B'.
The application server 'B' is a much more powerful system than the webserver 'A'. I want to use the resources of 'B' to execute the app. I haven't been able to find an overload of system.process.start that specifies which system to execute the app on.
Thanks for your help.
