    Unanswered: Interfaces File?

    Could someone explain the interface file. I have 4 servers each report the same name when running the command showserver/all. Is it possible to put multiple entries in the interface file so these servers could be accessed by different names via an odbc connection?

    Thanks
    John

    ODBC Connections don't have anything to do with your Servernames in the interfaces file.

    All it requires is the hostname(unix hostname) and the port number. So you can have the ODBC names can be anything that you like and does not have to match the servernames.

    So what is the interface file used for?

    I wish we were using UNIX and TCP/IP. This system runs on VMS with the DECNET.
