My project is offline examination system in that i developed server side coding fully. and mark calculation and timer controls are all working fine . login and logout controls are all fine.

But my problem is that now if i run that it will run only in one system , it will start the server and run in the browser. but since this is a offline examination system that is 20 systems will be attached over network and then that exam should be conducted. How to do that :(

I dont have any idea how to change it to client-server concept. something like multicasting

Can u help me out please :(

I assume by offline you meant no internet. By server, you have all 20 systems connected via LAN. Right?
Member 8780842 20-Feb-13 13:16pm
this is the connection i used

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["RegConnectionString"].ConnectionString);

I assume by offline you meant no internet. By server, you have all 20 systems connected via LAN.
Based on this (that you already confirmed), you want to have database access through LAN.

Place your database on a server and all you need is correct connection string. Database server being on network, you should be easily able to connect to it. You don't need internet for it.
Database does not need to be on every system, just the connection string to the database and you are good to go.

SqlConnection con = newSqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["RegConnectionString"].ConnectionString);
is the way how you access the connection string.

Actual connection string will be in config file, modify that.
Member 8780842 21-Feb-13 7:40am
Yes Sandeep Mewara how should that string look like if it is to be accessed via network

syntax or any of that kind ? please
Sandeep Mewara 21-Feb-13 7:42am
Is the project you are working a copy-paste?

Even if you say you have worked on your system, you should be knowing how a connection string looks like for local system.

Here, following should give you number of samples:

No sir i am a beginner i was asked to do a project in a new language and i took and did without hesitation . i saw some tutorial and developed a program fully . In that tutorial they used a sqldatasource and added a connectionString so i am not aware of that :( sorry to disturb you . since i am a beginner i am confused a lot :(
Sandeep Mewara 21-Feb-13 7:47am
Doing things without understanding will not take you on long run. While following tutorial you should have understood what connection string is.

I have already shared the link with samples like:
Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;
Member 8780842 21-Feb-13 7:50am
In this myServerAddress and userid and password how to set that please sir :(
Sandeep Mewara 21-Feb-13 8:03am
I don't know and cannot give you that.

serveraddress is your database server machine name.
userid/passowrd is the access privilege permission to access that machine database.

Nothing more to share.
