TCP/IP Installation (Windows)
To install Ingres Net for Windows with TCP/IP as its network protocol, you must first install the TCP/IP network software for Windows. From the Network applet in the Control Panel, choose Add Software. From the list of choices, choose TCP/IP Protocol and Related Components and follow the installation instructions.
To use symbolic node names (host names) of a remote host instead of its numeric IP address, you must either configure a Domain Name Server in the DNS section of the TCP/IP configuration or add a list of IP addresses and corresponding symbolic names in a file called %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. For information on the format of this file, see Windows documentation.
