Internet Considerations for AcuXML and C$XML

Both AcuXML and C$XML make use of Internet notation to provide direct access to XML data on the Internet. The procedures for using Internet notation are provided in the next sections.

If you prefer to use AcuServer to access the XML files over the Internet, you can combine it with AcuXML or C$XML. In this case, you include the domain name of the file server in the FILE_PREFIX variable, but you are required to have AcuServer installed on the machine hosting the XML files. The procedure for using AcuServer is also provided below.

Whichever method you choose, make sure that the server name that you specify is resolvable by the Internet name server that will be used. Of course, end users must have a live connection to the Internet or VPN to make use of the remote files.
