The default message-encoding behavior of SQL Remote is as follows:
- For message systems that can use binary message formats, no encoding is carried out.
- Some message systems, including SMTP, require text-based message formats. For these systems, an encoding DLL (dbencod.dll) translates messages into a text format before sending. The message format is unencoded at the receiving end using the same
- You can instruct SQL Remote to use a custom encoding scheme. The tools for building a custom encoding scheme are described
in the following section.
- If the compression database option is set to -1, then a Version 5 compatible encoding is carried out for all message systems.
