Confirm communications between the UltraLite client and the MobiLink server. When this parameter is set to true, no synchronization takes place.
The syntax varies depending on the API you use. You can also set this parameter with ulsync.
When the MobiLink server receives a ping request, it connects to the consolidated database, authenticates the user, and then sends the authenticating user status and value back to the client.
If the ping succeeds, the MobiLink server issues an information message. If the ping does not succeed, it issues an error message.
If the MobiLink user ID cannot be found in the ml_user system table and the MobiLink server is running with the command line option -zu+, the MobiLink server adds the user to ml_user.
The MobiLink server may execute the following scripts, if they exist, for a ping request:
ulsync can set this parameter as an extended synchronization parameter as follows:
ulsync -c DBF=myuldb.udb -k http -e "Username=remoteA;Version=2;Ping=True"
UltraLite for C/C++ applications can set the parameter as follows:
ul_synch_info_a info; // ... info.ping = ul_true;
