I already ran my Interbase Server Application into the server. i already create a ".gdb" file creating an alias name of "sampgdb", now after that i installed interbase for client into the other machine, i speciafy the server name and bla.bla.bla., my question now is i did not see my "sampgdb" database alias into the other machine, but i already logged succesfully using the IBConsole. how will i communicate with my ".gdb" file? when im using the client interbase?

Hi,
if you are using BDE to access IB server then you have to setup alias on every client computer.

so how would that be? setup alias on every client...
how would i specify it?

server name : z:\database\employee.dgb

.....

is that the thing?

if i ran the IBConsole into the client machine, will it not be automatically point the ".dgb" file?

When you connect to interbase using IBConsole, you do not use BDE aliases, console connects directly to specified server and database.

If you using BDE aliases, then you have to create an alias 'sampgdb' with type of interbase with right parameters.

ok, if i use the Ttable in the client machine what will i specify with the "databasename"?

whats the use of the Client Interbase?

I already logged into the interbase server using the client machine how will i get the databasename?

commection string in BDE alias settings for TCP/IP should be:

SERVERNAME:C:\PATH\FILE.GDB

where
SEVERNAME - name of server
C:\PATH\FILE.GDB - path including drive letter relative remote server
