    Connect to IDS on remote machine via C# and COM

    OutSerendipity

      Can anyone give me a clue as to how to connect to an InDesign Server installation running on a remote machine from a desktop C#/COM application?

      The application is a bog standard C# desktop application,  the InDesign Server instance ia running on a virtual machine on the local network.

       

      Currently I'm using:

      ourAppInstance = (InDesignServer.Application)(System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.BindToMoniker(configN ame));

       

      This works fine if both the application and server are local, but do I need to change configName to include a machine name or IP as well as the configuration name when the server is remote? Is there some other mechanism I am missing?

       

      Thanks
