Thanks Milan,

To test my networked app I'm trying to set up an isolated VMWare
virtual network on my laptop and have a db "server" and 2 clients
within this. However my app uses TCPIP for DB access and I can't
figure out how to set the virtual network up to make this work. Is it
possible to do this? If so, I will spend a lot more time studying the
documentation. I would be very grateful for any tips you can give me.
