Running the MobiLink server

All MobiLink clients synchronize through the MobiLink server. None connect directly to a database server. You must start the MobiLink server before a MobiLink client synchronizes.

For a list of mlsrv12 command line options, see MobiLink server options.

The MobiLink server opens database connections, via ODBC, with your consolidated database server. It then accepts connections from remote applications and controls the synchronization process.

 ♦  To start the MobiLink server
  • Run mlsrv12. Use the -c option to specify the ODBC connection parameters for your consolidated database.

For information about connection parameters, see -c mlsrv12 option.

You must specify connection parameters. Other options are available, but are optional. These options allow you to specify how the server works. For example, you can specify a cache size and logging options.

For more information about mlsrv12 options, see mlsrv12 syntax.


The mlsrv12 options allow you to specify how the MobiLink server works. To control what the server does during synchronization, you define scripts that are invoked at synchronization events. See Synchronization events.
