Connecting on a dial-up network connection

You can use connection and protocol options to assist with connecting to a database across a dial-up link.

On the client side, you should specify the following protocol options:

  • Host parameter   You should specify the host name or IP address of the database server using the Host (IP) protocol option. See Host (IP) protocol option.

  • DoBroadcast parameter   If you specify the Host (IP) protocol option, there is no need to do a broadcast search for the database server. For this reason, use direct broadcasting. See DoBroadcast (DOBROAD) protocol option.

  • MyIP parameter   You should set MyIP=NONE on the client side. See MyIP (ME) protocol option.

  • TIMEOUT parameter   Set the Timeout (TO) protocol option to increase the time the client will wait while searching for a server. See Timeout (TO) protocol option.

A typical CommLinks (LINKS) connection parameter may look as follows:

LINKS=tcpip(MyIP=NONE;DoBroadcast=DIRECT;HOST=server_ip)
