DDE over a server? or from a different computer?

I am trying to DDE to a PT company(kent2000) on the server. Our PT data and company(kent2000) is located on the server but I get the error:
Foriegn application won't perform DDE application or method

I am using the following code:

quotepage.TextBoxLink.LinkMode = 0
    quotepage.TextBoxLink.LinkTopic = "\\Server\C\PEACHW" & "|" & "KENT2000"
    quotepage.TextBoxLink.LinkMode = 2
    quotepage.TextBoxLink.LinkItem = "PASSWORD"
    quotepage.TextBoxLink.Text = "GROVE\PASSWORD" 'a user ID (admin) and its password (peach) in BCS

iF ANYONE HAS SUCCESSFULLY DDE 'd over a network or from a different computer, please let me know.

RE: DDE over a server? or from a different computer?

I have found that when I use DDE I have to have Peachtree open and the company I want to work with active.  I normally use Visual Foxpro so my code is different.  I haven't needed to put in more then directory name for the data when opening.

Thinking about it I wrote an assembly management program for a customer in which the data resides on the server and the application runs of work stations.  I believe they always did the DDE on the same work station, but it should have worked on any of them.
