The use of Distributed System technology to enable users who are not fixed in a single physical position to communicate with computers which form part of a network; more often than not these computers act like Server. This is one of the upcoming enlargement areas in distributed computing, nowadays many production organization attempts to capture the functionality of normal computer which may embed into portable devices like mobile phones. Mobile computing, which enables real-time isolated access to corporate networks from a mini computer, is now being spotlighted as notebook computers become smaller and more composite, and ISDN, wireless networks, and mobile phones become more popular. Unlike predictable networks, many problems encountered when constructing mobile computing environments affect mobile computing users and Network Analyst. This paper discusses these problems and introduces two connecting software products to help users to overcome them.
