    Connect through another PC


    Hi,
    I'm new in this Forum, I'm talking from Portugal... So, sorry if my english isn't the best! I'll try to do my best

    I've got a situation that the only workaround I saw is to connect to firebird database through another PC.

    I've a private network that has a server that is connected to the internet, the others pc's (in this private network) aren't.

    I want to connect the others PC to a database that is located somewhere in the internet.

    I'm using BDE (I know that is very old and there isn't any recent updates, but it works fine til now) and my question is: Is it possible to connect with BDE with SERVER NAME string like this "10.0.0.1:10.0.0.2:c:\database.fdb"?

    I've already tried this but it returns the message "Unknown user name or password".
    Is there any configuration to make this thing work out?

    Thanks
    Best Regards to you all
    Tiago França

    With this software, you can build one private network and access yours pc around the internet:

    Hi emailx45,
    Thanks for your reply.
    Unfornately I can't use Hamachi. Computers in private network wont be able to acess internet, so, Hamachi wont work.

    I found something, in Firebird.conf file there's an option that could be set to redirect database calls to other server.
    Near the end of file you will find the line '#Redirection = 0', replace that line with 'Redirection = 1' (removing # char) and then you'll be able to connect like server1:server2:database.fdb.

    Though it connects trough BDE, I can't execute any SQL, firebird simply stops working making my application to crash.

    Any clues?

    Thanks

    NOTE: For to access one network EXTERNAL, YOU need ALWAYS privilegies for this -> The ADMIN of network can give you one or more PORTS to INPUT and OUTPUT datas and connections.

    You can have more than one network card in your server, depends on the ability of the same technique.

    The more resource use, less performance for the server.

    Tip: Always use a server to "only" supplier, the database, always have a disk for the operating system and the Firebird Server installation, one to the database and one to the temporary file so you have a better performance.

    Never use a desktop to server data from a large scale or with multiple hits.


    The configuration of FIREBIRD.CONF depend of:
    1- Type of Firebird in use
    2- Version of Firebird
    3- Plataform in use (O.S.)
    4- Ports open to access (internal or external)
    5- Number of connections avaliable to acess in your servers
    5- etc...

    See the site of FIREBIRDSQL for more instruction.

    Ask to ADMIN to FREE one PORT forward to access external in your Firewall

    # Comments
    # --------
    # The # character is used for comments and can be placed anywhere on a
    # line. Anything following the # character on a line is considered a
    # comment.
    #
    # Examples:
    #
    # # This is a comment
    # DefaultDbCachePages = 2048 # This is an end-of-line comment
    #
    # Entries
    # -------
    # The default value for each entry is listed to the right of the "=".
    # To activate an entry, remove the leading "#"s and supply the desired
    # value.
    #
    # Please note, a number of the values are specified in **Bytes** (Not KB).
    # Accordingly, we have provided some simple conversion tables at the bottom
    # of this file.
    #
    # There are three types of configuration values: integer, boolean and string.
    #
    # Integer
    # --------
    # Integers is what they sound like, an integral value. Examples:
    # 1
    # 42
    # 4711
    #
    # Boolean
    # -------
    # Boolean is expressed as integer values with 0 (zero) being "false" and
    # non-zero is taken to mean "true". For consistency we recommend you
    # only use 0/1.
    #
    # String
    # ------
    # Strings are also what they sound like, strings. Examples:
    # RootDirectory = /opt/firebird
    # RemotePipeName = pipe47

    # Unless this configuration option is changed from 0 to 1, Firebird can
    # open a database only if the database is stored on a drive physically

    # Firebird. Requests for connections to databases stored on NFS mounted
    # drives are redirected to a Firebird server running on the computer that
    # "owns" the disk.
    # This restriction prevents two different copies of Firebird from opening
    # the same database without coordinating their activities. Uncoordinated
    # access by multiple copies of Firebird will corrupt a database. On a local
    # system, the system-level file locking prevents uncoordinated access to
    # the database file.
    #
    # NFS does not provide a reliable way to detect multiple users of a file on
    # an NFS mounted disk. If a second copy of Firebird connects to a database on
    # an NFS mounted disk, it will corrupt the database.
    # Under some circumstances, running a Firebird server on the computer that
    # owns NFS mounted volumes is inconvenient or impossible. Applications that
    # use the "embedded" variant of Firebird and never share access to a database
    # can use this option to permit direct access to databases on NFS mounted
    # volumes.
    #
    # The situation for SMB/CIFS is quite similar to NFS with not all configurations
    # providing file locking mechanisms needed for safe operation. Using SuperServer
    # engine with the database on NT file server may be considered relatively safe
    # as file locking protects the database from being used by the several engines.

    #
    # Ability to redirect requests to other servers was initially present
    # in Interbase, but was broken by Borland in Interbase 6.0, when
    # they added SQL dialects. Request redirection was fixed in firebird 2.0,
    # but today such behaviour (proxy) seems to be dangerous from security
    # point of view. Imagine, you have one carefully protected firebird server,
    # access to which is possible from global net. But in case when this server
    # has access to your internal LAN (may and should be restricted,
    # but often possible), it will work as a gateway for incoming requests like:
    # firebird.your.domain.com:internal_server:/private/database.fdb
    # It's enough to know name/IP of some internal server on your LAN, and for
    # this connection one even need not know login/password on external server.
    # Such gateway easily overrides firewall, installed to protect your LAN
    # from outside attack.

    # DO NOT ENABLE THIS OPTION UNLESS YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

    I've only changed 'Redirection' option, setting it to 1.

    I've double checked firewall and port redirection settings, all OK.

    It connects through BDE... But thats all... I can't execute any SQL... It pops a windows error and my app aplication stops working...

    I'll try to understand more about firebird.conf file... Or it could be an option on BDE side...

    Thanks
