We’ve finally decided to create a ‘full’ remote client for our FileMover. This means that we’ll spend a lot of time the coming months solely to add this feature. Believe me, we’ve tried lots of options available on the ‘code’ market. Lost a lot of coding hours too. The first remote client will be a native windows client (32 and 64 bit). It will use IPC (Inter Process Communication using Named Pipes) to connect to the FileMover Application or Service. We’ll start with a very basic version and will keep adding options that are already available in the FileMove Application GUI. The second version will use IMC (Inter Machine Communication using TCP/IP) so you’ll be able to use this remote client over your network.
