I've been working with WSE Win32 on WinServer2003. For remote
communications, have read all the docs a dozen times. Keeps talking
about run-time clients and other clients. I could never get this to
work.

Programmer came to my office, did "things" re port 50000 (DB2
default?), allowed access from his machine through my firewall.
Plugged his laptop into a regular phone line and established dialup
connection to my server.

He was then able to run the app that he's working on against the
appropriate database on my machine.

No run-time client, nor any other client!

What have I been missing? Is any db2 client necessary for anyone on
the intranet or internet to access a database?!? If not, why are they
supplied?

What kind of application is he running, and what kind of server
application is set up on your machine? For Java type-4 apps or
browser-based web apps that connect into a web-server, no client is
required. For other Java or non-java apps, run-time client is absolutely
required to connect to a DB2 server from another machine.

BTW ... the run-time client is there to support remote client apps, the
admin client is there to support DB2 administration remotely and the A/D
client is there to support application development.
