Is it possible to run DbRemote and Mobilink at the
simultaneouly at a remote site. We are converting the remote
sites that are using DbRemote to Mobilink and I would like
to run parallel for a short period of time. Also, can I run
2 Mobilink Server on the same computer going to 2 different
consolidated databases. My guess is yes by using 2 seperate
ports and having the remote sites point to the appropriate
port. Secondly, if no port is defined at the remote site,
will the default port always be used?

Yes. That applies at both the consolidated site (if SA or ASE)
as well as the remote site since the mechanisms of replication
and synchronization are implemented separately from each of
and they even coordinate on the transaction log management.

The biggest issue is the possible duplication of or conflict due
to rows being moved in parallel by both mechanism; so publication
design, possibly schema concerns and subscriptions may need
tactical adjustments.

Absolutely yes. Especially given the rest of that thought.

The default one ... which transport layer is the biggest
variable here
TCP/IP (encrypted or not) defaults to port 2439
HTTP defaults to port 80
HTTPS defaults to port 443
[see the -x option of the mobilink server for more info.]

For more details on ML you will probably want to post
questions to the mobilink-specific newsgroup

sybase.public.sqlanywhere.mobilink

Even questions like these can usually be handled there.
