connect to NIS database over tunneled connection

  • 1.  connect to NIS database over tunneled connection

    Hi there,

     

    I am trying to connect to the nis database from a hub that is connected to the primary hub via a tunnel.

     

    When I try to open a database connection from the primary hub using the following string everything works fine.

     

    database.open("provider=nis;database=nis;driver=none")

     

    However when I try and do the same from the remote tunneled hub, the database connection cannot be made. Is there any way to solve this?

    Hi,

     

    You'll need direct access to the database for your method to work. If you absolutely need to access it from a remote hub that doesn't (and can't) have a direct access to the db, you could setup the dap probe on some robot that can access the db, and have your remote nas do the query to the dap via a callback.
