On Windows NT, a "shared" RFC library (DLL) is also provided. This DLL offers the complete RFC functionality except for one restriction and currently runs only with the TCP/IP product for Windows NT from Microsoft.
The following restrictions apply:
Since no remote shell demon currently exists under Windows NT, there are only the following two options to start an RFC server program from within an SAP system:
§ Via SAPGUI under Windows NT
§ Via an SAP gateway that runs under Windows NT. The SAP gateway then starts the RFC server program locally.
As an alternative, if you want to run an RFC server program on an explicit NT machine, you can use the Registering Server Programs with the SAP Gateway.
