FILES

The directory samples\rpc\data\inout contains the following files for building the sample distributed application INOUT:

File Description

README.TXT Readme file for the INOUT sample INOUT.IDL Interface definition language file INOUT.ACF Attribute configuration file INOUTC.C Client main program INOUTS.C Server main program INOUTP.C Remote procedures MAKEFILE Nmake file to build for Windows

BUILDING CLIENT AND SERVER APPLICATIONS

The following environment variables should be already set for you:

set CPU=i386 set INCLUDE=%SDKROOT%\h set LIB=%SDKROOT%\lib set PATH=%SDKROOT%\system32;%SDKROOT%\bin

where %SDKROOT% is the root directory for the 32-bit Windows SDK.

For mips, set CPU=mips For alpha, set CPU=alpha

Build the sample distributed application:

nmake cleanall nmake

This builds the executable programs inoutc.exe (client) and inouts.exe (server).

RUNNING THE CLIENT AND SERVER APPLICATIONS

On the server, enter:

inouts

On the client, enter:

net start workstation inoutc

Note: The client and server applications can run on the same Microsoft Windows NT computer when you use different screen groups.

Several command-line switches are available to change settings for this program. For a listing of the switches available from the client program, enter:

inoutc -?

For a listing of switches available from the server program, enter:

inouts -?
