Once you have the remote server running on the target server, it is time to run busTRACE on the client system. The steps to capture I/O activity on a remote system are nearly identical to capturing I/O activity on your local system.

You select the Capture I/O activity on this computer or a remote computer, from the busTRACE Start Menu, and then click on the Remote Connect button on the busTRACE toolbar.

In the Remote Connection dialog box, you specify which computer you would like to connect too. The following fields are available.

Recent If you have successfully connected to a remote server previously, this drop down list shows you those previous connections. Simply select the computer you are interested in connecting too.
IP Address In this field, you enter the IP address of the computer you want to connect too (i.e. the remote server). The remote computer's IP address is visible when you run the busTRACE remote server application.
Port If you prefer a TCP/IP port location, other than 99, you would enter that here. You must make sure that both the client and server are using the same port to communicate.

The remote server's IP address may be similar to the client's IP address. It is for this reason that, when run for the first time, busTRACE will initially show you the client's IP Address. From there, you can make any adjustments to make sure you are using the remote computer's IP Address (i.e. the server).

Once you're set, click on the OK button and busTRACE will remotely connect to the target server.

All other busTRACE options and analysis features are the same whether you're doing a local capture or a remote capture.
