Hello,
I have many questions about IB
1- For using IB on Client/Server network , What Software must be install
on Server ?
and What Software must be install on Client ?
2- TIBDatabase->DatabaseName for TCP/IP Client/Server must use:
<server_name>:<filename>
can describ it ?
I run IBConsole and register server:
AliasName : CNSERVER
Network Protocol: TCP/IP
Host Name : 192.168.0.1 (it is Server IP)
and create an database on this serevr:
E:\IBData\Database.gdb
Now on client application how can write TIBDatabase->DatabaseName for
connect to
this server ?
3- After registered server on IBConsol in Certificates section "license for
five (5) users."
This means only five client can connect to server ?
Best Regards.
Thanks,
M.T

Server needs a full server install. No conenctivity drivers
though.
Client basically just needs gds32.dll and an entry in the
services file, but I tend to jsut run the installer and do the
client install since it is so disk space light.

CNSSERVER:e:\IBData\Database.gdb
You can also just double click the IBDatabase component, fill out
the in information in the component editor and after you save it
you can look at the databasename property to see how it is
properly filled out.

Yes. Each users is allowed up to 4 connections.
