connection to remote database

connection to remote database

connection to remote database

you sure know these database aliases in delphi, right?
Now, if I open the database explorer and select one of the aliases, I find a parameter called server which is where the given database is located, right?
Now, I was trying to connect to a remote database using this alias so I just tried by replacing c:\path\database.gdb with localhost:c:\path\database.gdb but it didn't work
does any of you know why? It *should* actually be the exact same thing, shouldnt it?

RE: connection to remote database

What license version of Interbase do you have?

The client-server version of Delphi supplied a 5 license version of Interbase, in other words the Server allows upto 5 remote connections

De Delphi pro versions had only the 1 license, local Interbase Server, thus it would not accept remote connections.
