Lesson 3: Connect with MobiLink

In this lesson, you create an ODBC data source that connects MobiLink to the consolidated database.

To connect MobiLink to the consolidated database
  1. Create an ODBC data source.

    You should use the ODBC driver provided by Adaptive Server Enterprise. For this tutorial, use the following configuration settings:

    General tab fields Value
    Data Source Name ase_cons
    Server Name (ASE Host Name) localhost
    Server Port 5000
    Database Name pubs2
    Logon ID sa
    Use Cursors not selected
    Transaction tab field Value
    Server Initiated Transactions not selected
  2. Test the ODBC connection:

    1. On the General tab, click Test Connection.

      The Adaptive Server Enterprise logon screen appears.

    2. Enter the password for the sa account.

      The Logon Succeeded message appears.

After configuring your ODBC data source, you can use the MobiLink plug-in to connect to the consolidated database and create a synchronization model.
