Dial-Up versus Leased Line

By rickyhadlocon ·
We are using Platinum/Batchmaster, a Financial/Manufacturing Applications running under Pervasive SQL 7 database engine.

My question is, why is it we are able to connect and use these applications using dial-up while we failed running the same applications over leased line (64kbps)?

Dial-Up versus Leased Line

Definitely a mistake in the leased line settings.
As far as I am aware, you can do ANYTHING with leased line which you can do with dial-up. However the factors around onus are different:
with dial-up the parties are solely the client and the dial-in host (often RAS),
with leased line also the telco or ISP could play an important role. If he cannot easily make the TCP/IP or other settings which were in place at dial-in, indeed trouble and fingerwagging can start. But all about agreements and knowhow, no inherent limitations on leased line...

Hope this helps,

Your performance should actually be better using a dedicated circuit since in most cases, you can transmit and receive simultaneously. With dial-up you can only transmit or receive...not both at the same time. Sounds like you have a problem. Hereare some things to check:
1. Is the data circuit up and running? Can you ping an ip address at the remote site? If not, look at your modem settings...both local and remote. If they are ok, there may be a problem with the phone utility that is providing the circuit.
2. Is your router configured correctly? Your dedicated circuit has to connect to a router in order to get onto the local area network supporting the server that runs your application. Check with network support and insure thatthe router interface is turned on and functioning properly. There may also be access control lists (filters) that might block your network address from getting to the server. Make sure your network has clear access to the server.
Hope this helps. Best wishes

On a leased line on end will need to provide the clocking

ie clockrate 64000
this will obviously depend on what equipment you are using
