Hi,

We are wanting to use jConnect with our firewall.

We want our database behind the firewall and the server/servlet
that uses jConnect which users connect to, to be outside the firewall.

Is this possible without opening up our whole firewall?

What have other people done in regards to firewalls?

I'd appreciate email to julia@wsc.com if possible as well
as to this group.

Regards
Julia

There are so many different firewalls with such different protection
policies - I do not have a simple answer for you.

Many firewall vendors do recognize and support TDS (Tabular Data Stream)
through the firewall, so putting the HTTP/JDBC Gateway on the machine
outside your firewall would work. Your Internet customers could
download your JDBC applet from this HTTP server, and then once the
applets are downloaded jConnect would connect back to the JDBC
Gateway and from there through to your SQL Server inside the firewall.
