I have developed a small MS Access application which is being used by about
30 users on a LAN. I soon will need to operate over a WAN and realise the
limitations of Access.
I think ASP.NET seems the way to go.
What do I need to buy and learn to get going with this?
Most of our servers are running Win2k Server, some Win2k3 server. I am
developing on a Win2kSp4 machine.
TIA

Try the .NET groups for answers, this is for Classic ASP. Anything
with a dotnet in the name. Or go to www.asp.net.

Sounds like ASP is still fine for what you want. It can handle big
applications quite easily. ASP.Net is very different to classic asp and
will mean redoing a lot of your code again in one of the ASP.Net
languages like C#.

What you do need to do is upgrade the database to SQL Server or one of
the other databases in that league that can handle lots of users.

It sounds the the application is not an ASP but an ACCESS application so he
will have to rewrite it anyway.

ASP/VBScript may have a lower learning curve than ASP.NET but .NET might be
a better choice going forward.
