I have a simple application to logon to the demo database and check if a contact exists. I have this working on a developement server with a local copy of ACT installed. When I attempt to logon to my production server of ACT on a different machine, I am unable to connect. I have many different scenerios with no luck.
actFwk.LogOn("C:\Data\ACT2011Demo.pad", "Chris Huffman", "")
do I use a local .pad file with a pointer to the remote server database files, or use the server .pad file pointing to its own local database files?
Can anyone give me some actual samples using a remote server?
I have tried to use
actFwk.LogOn("login", "pw", "host", "database")
as well, I was able to get an error message:
which I believe means it found the database, but cannot access the support files.
I have verified that the database is shared.
Can anyone shed some light on loging on to a remote server(with real sample code)?
I would think this is the way many people use it.
I have ACT 2001 premium installed on both servers.

OK it looks like i am narowing down the problem. When I try to access the SQL ACT server from the website(in a DMZ).
I get a login failure unknown user name or bad password.
In the security logs on the ACT server it shows logon failure for the IUSR account.
Can someone tell me what I have to enable to get this connection?

Thanks for the reply, What I found was, since I am trying to connect to the server from the DMZ website, The credentials passed from the website(DMX) to the ACT server were not accepted, which is before it got to the ACT login. This was verified by Microsoft, who substantially said, this was not possible. I was able to get it to work by setting up a webservice on the ACT server, and calling that service thru the webpages.
