Peer-to-peer servers

Is this possible under EG4.1 and Base SAS 9.1.3.

What I want to do is have a colleagues machine access the mass of data on my local hard-drive and use my SAS engine as the server. This, I think, prevents the data from having to be transported across the network, and would allow both of us to run the same projects from different work stations and utilize the same storage location for the mass of temporaries that get created.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Cheers

Re: Peer-to-peer servers

If you read SUGI paper 065-31 I presented a way to use SAS Connect in EGuide. I think the following would work:
1. Turn on the share permissions for your colleague to the folder with the data.
2. Run the SAS connect spawner on your machine.
3. he can then use the SAS Connect signon and the rsubmit-endrsubmit sandwich to run the stuff on your machine.
