Connecting from Sybase Central, Interactive SQL, or the SQL Anywhere Console utility


To use Sybase Central, Interactive SQL, or the SQL Anywhere Console utility for managing your database, you must first connect to it. In the Connect dialog, you tell Sybase Central, Interactive SQL, or the SQL Anywhere Console what database you want to connect to, where it is located, and how you want to connect to it.

The connection process depends on your situation. For example, if you have a server already running on your computer and this server contains only one database, all you have to do in the Connect dialog is provide a user ID and a password for that database. Sybase Central, Interactive SQL, or the SQL Anywhere Console then knows to connect immediately to the database on the running server.

If this running server has more than one database loaded on it, if it is not yet running, or if it is running on another computer, you need to provide more detailed information in the Connect dialog so that Sybase Central, Interactive SQL, or the SQL Anywhere Console knows which database to connect to.
