C# CONNECTION TO A REMOTE DATABASE

Hi Guys,

I have a Firebird database on our Amazon windows server 2008.

I need to developing a C# client application which needs to communicate with the Firebird database on cloud.

A couple of questions:(This is my first project with C# working with a database)

1.      What are the methods which I can create a connection between the application and the remote database.  (TCP)

2.      How secure are these connection.

Many thanks
Navid

The recommended way to connect to a firebird database over the internet is to establish a VPN tunnel and then communicate through that.

Hi,

Check this link - http://www.connectionstrings.com/firebird

Regarding security, it depends on the channel you are using! If you are using https, it will be more secure!

Hope it helps u...

Your connection string should be like this

connection.ConnectionString = "User ID=sysdba;Password=masterkey;" +
"Database=\\server\share\database.fdb;DataSource=10.48.14.51;Charset=NONE;";
