Subject Does qli connection over tcp/ip require a user and password
Author Ted Miglautsch
I am trying to connect to a firebird database on another computer. I
keep getting the reply, "Your user and password are not defined..." With
IB there were two separate authentication systems when connecting to a
remote database. For windows systems it used a user database maintained
through gsec. For Unix and Linux it used a form of rlogin's authentication.

I am trying to connect between two Linux computers. The hosts.equiv file
is properly setup as I previously did with IB but the connection is
rejected. I can rsh to the remote computer without entering a password.
But qli gets that user and password not defined message.
