Setting Up Your Clients Using ADS.INI

Advantage Database Server

The Advantage Internet Server configuration can be specified in the ADS.INI file by adding a couple of sections.

The [Drives] section lists the complete UNC path to which a drive letter is mapped. If your client application uses drive letters, you will need to define the drive letter mappings.

Example:

[ Drives ]

R:=\\SERVER1\SHARE

For each Advantage Database Server you want to connect to, you will need to have a separate server-name entry.

Example:

[ <server name> ]

INTERNET_PORT=<the Internet port for the server>

INTERNET_IP=<the IP address for the Advantage Database Server>

Example:

[Drives]

Q:=\\serverA\testsys\

r:=\\serverB\data\

[serverA]

INTERNET_PORT=2001

INTERNET_IP=198.169.1.69

[serverB]

INTERNET_PORT=2002

INTERNET_IP=198.70.169.72
