How do I properly define a CreateForm Director queue to a Crystal server

We have a Crystal server that does all of our Crystal report processing.

Our CreateForm server is on its own standalone server.

How do I properly define a Createform Director queue to the Crystal server so that when the output goes to that queue the output is placed on the queue then Director will pick up the output and process it properly. If we currently write from our Crystal server to our CreateForm director queue the output immediately disappears.

What we have had to do is write to a directory file on crystal. Write a script to transfer the file from our crystal server to our createforms server. Then I have the createforms server listen for files to be dumped onto the createforms server thru the use of folder monitor. Once folder monitor intercepts a file it dumps it on the director queue.

How do I properly define the director queue on the crystal server so I can eliminate the need to write to a flat file then transfer the file between servers then get folder monitor involved?

We are now using the newest version of Crystal (Business Objects).
