Hi Joaquim,

you could put the username and password in an ini file, encrypted or not -
it all depends upon the need for security in your application. Personally,
I'd leave them out myself and have the user supply them on connection - set
the IBO_Connection's LoginPrompt property to true to display the login
dialogue/dialog and just leave those two properties blank in the IDE. When
you connect, the user will have to fill in a valid username and password -
and hopefully, only authorised users will be able to do so.

Thanks for your reply.
And what about the username and password. Should they be encripted?
Is it safe?
