A network connection

The following figure shows a network-connection configuration for two database servers.

The client application is on host river and the database server is on host valley.
Figure 1. An example of a network client/server configuration
This figure shows sqlhosts information for the river client application and the valley host application. More information about this figure is described in the following text.

An sqlhosts entry for the valley_ds database server is defined on both computers.

Both computers are on the same TCP/IP network, but the host river uses sockets for its network programming interface, while the host valley uses TLI for its network programming interface. The nettype field must reflect the type of network programming interface used by the computer on which sqlhosts is located. In this example, the nettype field for the valley_ds database server on host river is onsoctcp, and the nettype field for the valley_ds database server on host valley is ontlitcp.
