Network protocol options

Network protocol options (for both the client and the server) enable you to work around peculiarities of different network protocol implementations.

You can supply the network protocol options in the server command. For example:

dbsrv11 -x tcpip(PARM1=value1;PARM2=value2;...)

From the client side, you enter the protocol options as the CommLinks (LINKS) connection parameter:


If there are spaces in a parameter, the network protocol options must be enclosed in quotation marks to be parsed properly by the system command interpreter:

dbsrv11 -x "tcpip(PARM1=value1;PARM2=value2;...)"

The quotation marks are also required under Unix if more than one parameter is given because Unix interprets the semicolon as a command separator.

Boolean parameters are turned on with YES, Y, ON, TRUE, T, or 1, and are turned off with any of NO, N, OFF, FALSE, F, and 0. The parameters are case insensitive.

The examples provided should all be entered on a single line; you can also include them in a configuration file and use the @ server option to invoke the configuration file.
