Doing work for a customer where they are running a gateway using vision on a computer and then also running three vision clients from that vision gateway computer. I have a script running for each client that looks for a csv file in a D drive directory. I know this D drive has to physically be on the vision client computer, not the computer running the gateway.
They also have a gateway with perspective projects and they have broken this up in a frontend/backend configuration where the backend houses comms to plc's and the frontend uses a remote tag provider to connect to backend. I have a script running on the frontend which is looking for an E drive and this was working until recently when they changed a few things around on their network. The script can't find the E drive anymore and the physical frontend computer does not have an E drive location. The E drive is located on a server. Am I correct that because the E drive is no longer residing on the physical computer housing the frontend gateway that is why it can't find the E drive? Would an IP address have to be added to the E drive filepath in order to access the E drive folder on the server computer?
