Is it possible to connect from the PDA to a database that is running on a
network server when the PDA did have a WLAN configuration? It seems to me it
should but I like to be sure before investing in that kind of PDA's.

Second, is it possible to connect to a network database when a non-WLAN PDA
is in the craddle?

Regards

Hans Groeneveld

I found the solution in the Beta newsgroup, and yes it works very easy.

For somebody who is looking for a solution:

[ODBC]
uid=dba
databasename=MyDB
server=MyServer
enginename=MyServer
commlinks=tcpip(host=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;dobroad=none)

Do you use these parameters in a Connect Statement or is
there a PocketPB function that will do the work?

That's the contents of the DSN file that goes on the device. You
would use the same thing for a local database, the commlinks entry
tells it to look for a server ASA database instead.

Also, ASA's remote server capability allows you to access
tables/procedures in other databases as if they were local. So you
can use the network ASA database as a bridge to reach other enterprise
databases.
