Dial-up network connections (CommLinks connection parameter)

To connect over a dial-up network connection, you must use the CommLinks connection parameter.

On the client side, you should specify the following protocol options:

  • Host   You should specify the host name or IP address of the database server using the Host (IP) protocol option.

  • DoBroadcast   If you specify the Host (IP) protocol option, there is no need to do a broadcast search for the database server. For this reason, use direct broadcasting.

  • MyIP   You should set MyIP=NONE on the client side.

  • TIMEOUT   Set the Timeout (TO) protocol option to increase the time the client waits while searching for a server.
