Usage

The REMOTE_SERVER_CFG configuration parameter is used to specify a file that lists the remote server hosts that are trusted by the computer housing the database server. If one or more of the listed servers are configured using the sqlhosts file connection-security option s=6, then you must set the S6_USE_REMOTE_SERVER_CFG configuration parameter to 1.

If S6_USE_REMOTE_SERVER_CFG is unset or set to 0, the system hosts.equiv file, rather than the file specified by the REMOTE_SERVER_CFG configuration parameter, is used to authenticate servers connecting through a secure port.
