We have a client that has Online Dynamic Server Ver 7.1. I have no problem
setting up 5.x for remote SQL access, but how do I configure a 7.1 engine
to do this? I understand that the engine "automatically" creates a thread
for each request, but how do I get any kind of response out of the engine?
Also, after looking at several chapters in the manual the client faxed to me
I believe I understand how the sqlhosts file is used for connecting to other
servers (which we don't need), but their is one statement that says that
the sqlhosts file must be present on a machine that is ONLY acting as a
server. What role does this play for the server? Does this mean I have
to have 1 entry in the sqlhosts file for EACH AND EVERY COMPUTER that may
wish to do doe remote access via TCP/IP? And a unique ALIAS name in the
onconfig file for each one of them? This seems unlikely since you could
potentially have hundreds of machines that may all access the same server.
What am I missing?
