You must set the network protocol in your application. Each UltraLite database that synchronizes with a MobiLink server does so over a network protocol. Available network protocols include TCP/IP, HTTP, HTTPS, and TLS. Support is also provided for HotSync synchronization on the Palm OS and for ActiveSync notification on Windows CE. For a list of which protocols support a specific set of options, see MobiLink Client Network Protocol Options.
Separately licensed component required
ECC encryption and FIPS-certified encryption require a separate license. All strong encryption technologies are subject to export regulations.
To configure UltraLite to use TLS, see Configuring UltraLite clients to use transport-layer security.
For the network protocol you set, you can choose from a set of corresponding protocol options to ensure that the UltraLite application can locate and properly communicate with the MobiLink server. The network protocol options provide information such as addressing information (host and port) and protocol-specific information. Refer to the table below to determine which options you can use for the stream type you are using.
You can provide the information needed to locate the MobiLink server in your application by setting the Stream Parameters parameter. See Stream Parameters synchronization parameter.
However, if you are using HotSync, and if you did not specify a Stream Parameter value, or even if you specified the value as NULL, you can enter the required parameters from the HotSync Manager. See Setting protocol options for MobiLink synchronization.
For information about including stream parameters in your UltraLite synchronization call, see:
zlib compression note
zlib compression is not supported on Palm OS or Symbian OS.
