You can use SQL Anywhere to build an installation with many applications running on different computers, connected over a network to a single network database server running on a separate computer. This is a client/server or multi-user database environment, and has the following architecture. The interface library is located on each client computer.
In this case, the database server is the SQL Anywhere network database server, which supports network communications over TCP/IP.
For a client application to work in a client/server environment, you need to specify additional connection parameters, typically the HOST connection parameter and optionally the ServerName parameter.
