Prevention of message corruption with encoding

SQL Remote encodes messages to ensure that they pass through message systems uncorrupted. The default message-encoding behavior of SQL Remote is as follows:

  • If the message system can use binary message formats, the messages are not encoded.

  • If the message system, for example SMTP, requires text-based message formats, then an encoding DLL (dbencod16.dll) translates the messages into a text format before sending. The message format is unencoded at the receiving end using the same DLL.

    You can customize the encoding scheme to provide extra features.

  • If the compression database option is set to -1, then a version 5 compatible encoding is used for all message systems.
