Executing Programs on the Client

After AcuConnect is running on the server, all you have to do to access the remote server application from the client is start the client program. If you have designed your application properly (embedding synchronous or asynchronous CALLs into the client application component, the client program will automatically and seamlessly launch the server application for you. The client configuration file, client.cfg or equivalent, defines the location of the server, along with the runtime flags and configuration file to be used at the server program run time. See Synchronous or Asynchronous Execution for more information.

When starting your client program, you can use any of the runtime options available to a standard ACUCOBOL-GT runtime. If you want to provide AcuConnect trace information for the client, specify -le plus the name of the error file in which to store the data.
