Specifying the connection protocol

The first NETTYPE entry, which specifies the protocol for a given connection type, applies to all dbservernames associated with that type. Subsequent NETTYPE entries for that connection type are ignored.

NETTYPE entries are required for connection types that are used for outgoing communication only even if those connection types are not listed in the sqlhosts information.
