i'm trying to connect an XP 32bit laptop over a WAN to an ASA11 db. the pc sees shared folders on the db server via explorer.
i'm using the Windows ODBC manager to set up the connection. because it's on a different sub net than the server, on the network tab in ODBC setup , i'm specifying host=220.127.116.11 with different tries at specifying a port and DoBroadcast=Direct.
examples of what i've tried are
host=...:2638;DoBroadcast=Direct (all lower, mixed case, and all upper).
i've tried the DoBr at the beginning of the line (DoBr..;host-...) with and without a port specified.
when the laptop is on the LAN in the main office, it connects.
any help would be appreciated.
If the port number that the server is using is 2638 (the default), you don't need to specify port= at all. If you're specifying a host IP address, the default is DoBroadcast=direct so you don't need to specify that either. In the network tab, make sure the TCP/IP box is checked and specify
