Sorry to be back with more questions but this is one issue to which I
have not been successful in finding an answer.
With localhost I was successful in creating a connection using ADO also,
(Have been unable to understand all the components of the different
connection strings but still have a working form with a grid / working
datamodule and will be able to repeat the connection successfully )
but failed to access the same data over LAN.
I have attached my test_odbc2.prg for reference only.
\\Windows-2l0igcp\c\dbasetutorial\muneem\ unc path working
correctly for accessing files over LAN using OODML
//192.168.1.103/check_php.php this is also working in chrome
hence both are correct
but failed with all of the following lines
dbServer = "//192.168.1.103/localhost"
dbServer = upper("192.168.1.103\localhost")
dbServer = upper("\\Windows-2l0igcp\localhost")
None seem to be working. Can proceed with further testing after running
a successful test connection only.
