Hi sniger,

From the DB2 command line processor, use the CATALOG TCPIP NODE and the CATALOG DATABASE commands

  CATALOG TCPIP NODE nodename REMOTE {hostname | IP address} SERVER 50000
  CATALOG DATABASE dbname [as localname] AT NODE {nodename}

Good Luck!

You do need the CONNECT command.  The 2 CATALOG statements (shown above) identify the server and database to your local client.  This is a 1-time thing.  The client stores the information locally so you can continue to connect to that database until you UNCATALOG it.

You then execute

  CONNECT TO localname

every time that you want to create a connection.

Good Luck!
