Go Up to Network Configuration
Network configuration of a client/server system involves several different software and hardware layers and proper configuration of each of these layers. When one or more layers are mis-configured, it is not always evident where the problem lies. InterBase Communication diagnostics helps to identify the source of the problem by testing each layer progressively for existing or potential network problems.
You can access the Communication Diagnostics dialog by one of the following methods:
- Select a disconnected server in the Tree pane. Choose Server|Diagnose Connection
- Right-click InterBase Servers or any disconnected server in the Tree pane and choose Diagnose Connection from the context menu.
- Select a disconnected server from the Tree pane and double-click Diagnose Connection in the Work pane.
There are four types of diagnostics that you can perform. The Communications Diagnostics dialog has separate tabs for each diagnostic type.
