Which question are you asking? How to run Emerald remotely, or how to
configure the system from remote?

Either way, the answer is the same as the reply to the other user wanting to
run Emerald from modem. You must make sure your system is configured properly
to authenticate to the SQL server (which might require an LMHOSTS entry on
your remote machine) and you're in. Remember that while remote, you well may
not belong to the proper domain, so your inherited credentials won't
necessarily work (ie. logging into your Win95 machine won't necessarily
automatically let you credential through to the remote SQL system).
