The FILE MANAGER is a separate Sunbelt product. You run it on a machine connected to the internet with a static IP address. Other PLBWIN programs running anywhere in the world which have access to the internet can access files stored on the machine which is running FILE MANAGER.
File manager will work behind a firewall provided that PORT FORWARDING is supported. MMCC runs it's file manager behind a SonicWall hardware firewall.
A file is defined as being on a file manager system simply by appending the IP address and port number of that machine to the file name. The IP address is prefixed with the pipe (vertical bar) character. For example:
The following instructions are supported by the FILE MANAGER system. There are probably more.
A note from Sunbelt web board 4/8/2004 regarding SORT verb and file manager:
- I/O all read/writes
With version 8.7 you can sort the local file to a temporary file and then use COPYFILE to get the file to the file manager.
With version 9.0 you can do the same thing, or use COPYFILE to copy the file to the file manager and then cause the sort to be performed on the file manager.
You CANNOT sort a local file to a file on the file manager, or a file on the file manager to a local file.
