Remote Users
Ingres Net allows access to databases on local or remote nodes. Users can only access data for which they are authorized.
Ingres Net can be configured to allow users access to remote nodes directly (through an installation password) or by providing a user name and password. The user name and password can be authenticated by the DBMS (if the server has DBMS authentication enabled), or against a local OS user account. The password is encrypted as it is sent across the network.
