If present, click to connect to a Sybase IQ database, an UltraLite database, or a generic ODBC database.
Choose one of the following options to connect to the SQL Anywhere database:
Database Connect to the database using a user ID and password.
User ID Type a user ID for the connection. The user ID you supply must have permissions on a database to connect. See Userid (UID) connection parameter.
The default user ID for SQL Anywhere databases is DBA.
Password Type a password for the connection. The password must be the correct password for the user ID you supply. Passwords are case sensitive. See Password (PWD) connection parameter.
The default password for SQL Anywhere databases is sql when you connect with the default user, DBA.
Windows Integrated Login Choose this option to connect to the database using an integrated login on Microsoft Windows. When you choose this option, your Microsoft Windows user ID and password are supplied to the SQL Anywhere integrated login mechanism.
To use integrated logins, you must have been granted integrated login permission on the database and the database server must be set up to accept integrated logins. See Windows integrated logins.
Use the action Connect To A Running Database On This Computer when you want to connect to a database that is already running on your computer.
When the Connect To A Running Database On This Computer action is chosen, the following options are available:
Server name Type the name of the SQL Anywhere personal database or network database server. For example, demo12. You can also choose a recently-used database server name from the dropdown list.
You must supply a database server name if you want to connect to a network server. You can omit the database server name if you want to connect to the default personal server. See Database server and database naming and ServerName (Server) connection parameter.
Database name Type the name of the database you are connecting to. For example, demo. Each database running on a database server is identified by a database name. You can also choose a recently-used database name from the dropdown list. See DatabaseName (DBN) connection parameter.
The following tools are available:
Test Connection This tool tests whether the information provided results in a proper connection. This tool is only available when you are connecting to a SQL Anywhere database.
Click Show Details to see debugging information about how the connection parameters are used to find the database server.
Copy Connection String to Clipboard This tool copies the connection string, which is based on the information provided, to the clipboard.
Save as ODBC Data Source This tool creates an ODBC data source based on the information provided. See Creating an ODBC data source (Sybase Central and Interactive SQL).
Setup Windows Mobile proxy port This tool helps you set up a TCP/IP port redirector for connecting to Windows Mobile databases (if Windows Mobile services are installed). This tool is only available if you have Microsoft ActiveSync installed and are connecting to a SQL Anywhere or UltraLite database.
If required, you can click Advanced to specify options such as TCP/IP, encryption, and other advanced options. See Connect window: Connect to a SQL Anywhere database:Advanced options tab and Connect window: Connect to a SQL Anywhere database: Network tab.
