How the Bridge Server Works
Ingres Bridge consists of the Bridge Server.
The Bridge Server (iigcb) process connects a client application on one type of network to a server on a different type of network. Modeled on the transport layer of the Ingres Net architecture, the Bridge Server does the following:
Listens for and accepts incoming connection requests and establishes corresponding connections to a local or remote Communications Server
Allows bi-directional data transfer over the established connections
Terminates the connections in an orderly way
