    Lightbulb connecting to another computer

    Hi all,
    Is there a way I can connect to another computer using c programming? What do i need to do if I want to access a file in another computer.

    thanks and regards,

    it's like I want to use Cprogramming to connect to a server so that I can modify or update the database in that particular server.

    is it possible?

    If you want to use databases I'm pretty sure the database provider has a driver for this for download. It's called ODBC for Open DataBase Connectivity. If you are using the MFC you can access such datasources using the CDatabase class.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
