To operate runfm across a network, specify -remote with the name of the remote system where FrameMaker is installed. The name to use for the remote system is the name you see under My Network Places in Windows Explorer. Omit any punctuation.
When you specify -remote you can use the -close option, but if you -close all, runfm does not copy the FrameMaker console output to a log file (see §34.5.3 ).
For remote operation you might have to specify system settings to enable DCOM (Distributed Component Object Model) on both machines. On Windows XP Pro (for example), type dcomcnfg at a command prompt and press Enter; the Component Services console opens. Navigate to Component Services > Computers > My Computer > DCOM Config, and select FrameMaker API. On the Action menu choose Properties; the FrameMaker API Properties dialog opens. For information about the settings available, try Help. For additional information, see Running asynchronous clients on remote hosts in the FDK Platform Guide, winguide.pdf.
