This “remote database only” scenario is for advanced users.
It requires at least two computers on the local network: one contains the database server, while other processing workstation(s) only contains HyperLab Main Module, which accesses the remote databases through local computer network. This setup is ideal for working groups, where the database is installed on a central server, and a regular backup preserves the common database. The setup steps required for the two computer case are detailed below.
Installation on the remote computer
Install all HyperLab components, including the Main Module and the MSDE database server.
Create a new database from the Main Module: click on “Local Database Server” node, then select task “Create database” from the right and follow the instructions.
Make sure if the database server accepts incoming connections: click on “HyperLab databases” node, then select task “Manage database server” from the right. The management window appears now. Make sure that “TCP/IP” protocol is enabled. See “Configuring remote access
“ for further details.
Installation on the local computer
Install HyperLab components without the MSDE database server.
Register the remote database(s) previously created on remote computer(s): click on “HyperLab databases” node, then select task “Register a remote database” from the right and follow the instructions. Specify the remote computer name as the database server host name.
Start using your newly registered remote databases. Please note that the user name and password is tied to the database server – thus it is possible that you should specify different passwords for different remote databases.
