Installation Passwords
Ingres Net allows you to set up an Installation Password to authorize access to a server installation from a remote client installation without setting up an operating system account on the server; the user retains his identity as defined on the client instance.
The main advantage of using installation passwords is that users on the client do not require a login account on the server.
A valid Ingres user object must be created in the master database using the same operating system user ID as on the remote client. OS authentication is done on the remote client, where the user must have a login and password.
For details of Ingres Net setup, see the Connectivity Guide.
