By sairam_p ·

TCP/IP is a set of protocols avbl for communication. A named pipe, however, is an abstraction avbl for inter-process communication.
Further, in case of named pipes, the communicating processes MUST be residing in the same address space ( or same m/c ). If you want to cross this boundary, use a client-server or a TCP/IP model. In your case, the client-server or TCP/IP model can be used.
Onto your problem on database access, I believe there shouldn't be any problem if the time of access differ and the connection is closed properly by the client accessing the database. Other members more experienced would provide a suitable answer :).
The access information, ( username, password ), is local to the server ( the database server in this case) so, if multiple log on facility is not provided ( certain file servers can be configured for multiple access, dont know whether it is applicable to database servers ), it is impossible.
