I just started at a new company, and I have 9.3 on my computer, however for most processing I use remote desktop to connect to a server in another state, and run 9.3 via that. I have all the drives from that server mapped onto my local machine, so I would like to set up my local copy to be able to submit the process on the remote machine.
After doing some googling, it seems SAS/Connect is what I need to do this - is this correct? If anyone has any information about how I can go about setting this up, I would really appreciate it.

Here is what i (we) did:
Install SAS/Connect on the remote (UNIX) system. Then install the Spawner on that system.
Once that is done, you can allocate the remote libraries on your local system using a LIBNAME with server= and run you code on the local system with access to all the remote data.
If that is not the way you want to go - once the remote system has the spawner on it, you can connect from your local system to the remote system through the spawner. Then you can take a block of code on the local system and use "RSUBMIT" (remote submit) to submit it to be run on the remote system.
Hope this helps.
