Remote Server property sheet: General tab

The General tab of the Remote Server property sheet has the following components:

Name    Shows the name of the remote server.

Type    Shows the type of object.

Read-only    Shows whether or not the remote server is read-only.

Server type    Shows the class or software platform of the database server. You can choose a different software platform from the dropdown list to change the server type.

The server type that you choose restricts the types of connection you can choose from. For example, if you choose Generic Server from the Server Type dropdown list, you can only connect using ODBC.

Connection type    Lets you choose between the ODBC and JDBC connection protocols.

Connection information    Lets you specify startup connection parameters, such as the name and address of the server.

For ODBC data sources, type the name of the data source. For JDBC access, type a computer name or IP address and a port number in the form hostname:portnumber.

Test Connection    Click this button to test whether the information provided in the remote server definition results in a proper connection.
