Hi,
What do you meant by online, is it web based (HTML) or distributed application

You can check out webconnect from www.west-wind.com

Define what you mena by online.

a) a website (sending HTML from a web server).

b) a Windows Form that communicates to a remote server through HTTP

c) a Windows Form that communicates to a remote server through Web Services

d) A form that does file transfers over FTP

e) other

 

VFP can do all of them with certain additions. It can do Web Services natively very well. It can do FTP through the use of the Windows API, or third party DLLs or controls.

VFP can also run a website (IIS) through third party frameworks such as Web Connection (the one I've used, but by no means the only one).

Some useful references:

That would be options (b) or (c) above.

Look at the articles indicated above, for building distributed applications that access the web through HTTP.
