What license do you have installed? The message says that the license is not usuble for remote connections. My guess is, you have a personal DB license on the client, but you need a "client networking" license to do the remote connect.

l have installed progress client on the machine, how do l install this progress client networking

The Progress client may or may not include client networking (depending on the product)..

Either run the showcfg shortcut, or open the progress.cfg and make sure that 'Client Networking' is an installed product.

In your Progress or OpenEdge Program group in the explorer start menu, there should be a "Config" link. That will display the product names you have installed.

l have checked and the product name is client connect.

Client connect is not a Progress product name.

I believe it may have been at one stage. Can you tell us what version you're running?

am using version 9.1e

According to the KBase solution P15159, Client Connect should include a client networking license. As such, you should be able to connect to a remote database.

I suggest you open a call with Tech Support. I'd t tell them about this PSDN thread too.

l later uninstalled Progress from the client and reinstalled using the same key codes (client connect) lpreviously used and l managed to connect to the appserver.

I bet TS would have recommended the same.
