I have recently been asked if we can connect an
external site, through our Firewall, to an Ingres database.
The remote client will be using CA OpenRoad
which, (I'm lead to belive), uses IngresNet. I've talked to the DB admin/support
team and they have no idea as to how IngresNet works.. in fact they told me all
that would be needed was a telnet session(!).
Does anyone have any details on IngresNet e.g.
tcp/udp port numbers, any quirks (such as dynamic port re-allocation as in
sql*net) or anything else that would be pertinent when trying to pass this, in
as secure a manner as possible, through a Firewall.
