Subject access a database through internet...
Author Sergio H. Gonzalez
Hello! I'm sure this is a *very silly* question, but as a matter of
fact, all my developments until today where on local networks (in
offices) and I never (until now) had the need of doing it. SO... SORRY

A customer of mine ask me if he can have the database on his server, and
connect to it from my app through internet.

I've tried with the connection string:

(some ip):c:\myapp\mydbfile.fdb

but I get the message that the server is not responding... should I do
something on the server side to allow "outside connections" ??

What are the basic steps to follow?

thank you in advance!!!
