Many corporations recently have been looking at their desktop computer strategies and have decided to focus their Information Systems budgets on a single platform. When this happens, developers and database administrators may be required to look for a different platform for their 4D Server application.
Fortunately, 4D’s well known cross platform capability makes this type of transition easy. However, many of the mission critical databases in use today have very large structures and data files. How do you transfer these large files quickly? An answer is via your ethernet—TCP/IP is a common networking protocol for both Macintosh and Microsoft Windows platform computers. With the use of FTP services software and a Web browser, you can transfer your data and structure to the new computer.
