Introduction
QAD QXtend Inbound (QXI) connects to the QAD Enterprise Applications receivers using telnet. This connection is managed in the Connection Pool Manager. If QXI and the QAD Enterprise Applications receivers are installed on the same machine, the Connection Pool Manager still uses telnet to connect the QAD QXtend instance to the QAD Enterprise Applications instance.
During normal operation, the sequence of events is as follows:
1
Start the database servers for the QAD Enterprise Applications instances.
2
Start QXI.
3
QXI Connection Pool Manager creates connections to QAD Enterprise Applications. This connection is broken down into:
a
Log in to the database server.
b
Move to the QAD Enterprise Applications launch directory.
c
Launch QAD Enterprise Applications using special run scripts.
This section provides the necessary details on entering the correct telnet log-in script into the Connection Pool Manager, and how to create the special QAD Enterprise Applications run scripts.
Additional information is available at the end of the section on telnet security.
