That said you can store the data on a Linux box and share with SAMBA, but you still would need a computer somewhere running the VFP application, it either runs on each of the 200 clients or on the server and the clients 'look in' to via RDP.

Sorry David, I am getting confused...

> 1. I don't use SETUP but only execute file and DBF file

What SETUP?

> 2. My spec is use HP Proliant SERVER BUILT IN

Is this to store data or run program?

> 3. On Head Office i use LAN ( I was installed SAMBA )

Is the VFP program on your client machine and looking at Prolaint Server for data or do you run the VFP program on the server?

> 4. On branch office i use WAN ( I use Hamachi to access SERVER )

Again what are you accessing? Data stored on the server?

Can you specify where the data is stored and where the program is running?

> 5. And i have problem with the access both Headquarters and branch offices

So has this setup ever worked? What problem are you having? Do you have errors?

> 6. Before migration was ok both Headquarters and branch offices from HAMACHI (branch office) and active directory on HEAD OFFICE

Migration? Have you already converted your server to OpenSUSE? I presume then that only the data is on the server.

I am guessing here but I think you area saying...
- you have data on a Prolaint MicroServer running using OpenSUSE.
- You have a foxpro program trying to access this data over a VPN or via HAMACHI

If this is correct, then
- you need to set up you server to use samba (see here http://en.opensuse.org/Samba )
- on you client machine you need to map you samba shares to a drive letter so you have a consistent 'names' connection point.
