I'm not familiar with CA-Mlink, so could you give me an explaination of what
that sofware does? It sounds like you need to syncronize some data on the
central server with that on the store server. You don't say what kind of
link you have between the servers, nor whether we're dealing in just the raw
data, or whether the data is being merged into a database by your
application. Also, which machines are Linux and which are SCO?

I haven't ever set up iBCS, so I can't help you there.  However, there may
be ways of accomplishing the same goals with native Linux software,
depending on your answers to my previous question.
