Server Connection Data

You can set parameters that a client program will use in order to connect to a 602SQL Server. The dialog is opened when you register a new remote server or from the command Server Connection Data on the pop-up menu of a server that is not running (remote or local).

Address of the 602SQL Server

Server information is entered here when registering a remote server. If the client cannot access this server due to incorrect server information, it can be modified later.

Port number: The 602SQL Server uses a number of TCP and UDP ports for communication. You set the basic port, other ports are derived from this port. If you do not have a special requirement on the port, leave this field empty. Learn more about ports here.

The following checkboxes specify whether the client is connecting to a local server or a remote server (server on the network). Windows will use an internal communication protocol for a local connection, otherwise TCP/IP is used. You must set the IP address or name of the host computer that is resolved by DNS for a remote server. You can test the network (TCP/IP) connection with the remote server of the specified IP address or name using the Ping button.

SOCKS server

A SOCKS server allows a local server connection to the Internet and ensures network security against intruder attacks. If the connection should be established through this server, enable it and set the SOCKS server IP address. You can find more information about SOCKS in the chapter Ports and firewalls when using TCP/IP communication.

Server Certificate

In order to use encrypted communication between the client and the server you must download the server certificate to the client first. You can view the certificate or delete the certificate (thus creating a new one) in this section. More information can be found in the chapter Verifying 602SQL Server identity on the network.
