How Bridge Is Started
Ingres Bridge is started by reading configuration parameter values from one of the following:
The config.dat file
This method gives you have the flexibility of routing the client connections dynamically, and allows multiple routes.
To use values from config.dat, you can start Ingres Bridge using the ingstart command or Visual Manager (if available in your environment).
The iigcb command line options
This method requires you to stop and start Ingres Bridge if you want to route the client connections to a different installation, and allows only a single “from-to” route.
