Firebird in cyberspace?
I am trying to work out how best to access a firebird server from any location, both local and remote. I have some general questions:
- How safe is Firebird when used in this way, exposed to a port on the internet?
- What is the speed like over the internet for this type of use? (assuming a stable broadband link)
- Is there a mechanism to synchronise a number of distributed servers, which in turn serve local clients?
I would appriceate any comments from people who have written a distributed client/server application which runs in this way, or those who have an understanding of these issues.
Thankyou for your help.
