wintcp protocol deprecation on Windows

Postby BruceL » Fri, 15 Aug 2008 09:29:38 GMT

The Ingres/Net protocol "wintcp" on Windows was superceded (starting
with Ingres, post Ingres 2.6) with protocol "tcp_ip".  The new
protocol is compatible with the old but was enhanced to use the
Winsock 2 API (for improved performance) and later IPv6 support.
However, the old "wintcp" protocol driver still remained the default
for Ingres/Net and hence, is still the primary driver being used.  A
project is planned to deprecate (not remove) wintcp.  Basically, the
project involves making "tcp_ip" the default and providing an easy way
to switch from "wintcp" to "tcp_ip" (including converting vnodes) when
upgrading Ingres installations to the new release.

If you would like to review and/or comment on the project, there is a
Detailed Design Specification (DDS) for the project posted to the
Ingres Community site under Ingres Connectivity projects: see
eprecate Wintcp Protocolproject at  http://www.**--****.com/ 
.  Please provide any feedback regarding the design on the roject
tab discussion page for the eprecate WinTCP Protocolproject.

FYI, the design is a result of feedback received earlier this year
during a functional review.

2.Question about offices and databases (about protocol)


I'm writing from Italy and I have a question to ask to you all.

In Italian offices are used books in which are registered all documents
coming in and going out. Each document is assigned a number and an "in"
or "ouf" tag, so you can know when a document is arrived or has gone and
where in the archive is stored. They are termed "protocollo" (protocol).

This books are really books, made of paper, and we (a friend of mine and
I) are developing an application with FileMaker instead of them.

I would like to ask you whether such books are used in your countries
and whether already exists a FM application for this work.


P.S. Excuse me for my broken English. This is my first post ad all.

Can anyone tell me the difference between olsoctcp and onsoctcp? I've

4.Which ODBC protocol do I use to connect to Informix 10

I just downloaded the "clientsdk.3.50.TC3DE.WIN" I am configuring the
ODBC client DSN. Everything test great on multiple protocols such as
onsoctcp,olsoctcp, sesoctcp, ... connecting to a Informix 10 database.
The question I have is which protocol should I use? What do they stand
for what are the advantages and disadvantages of each.

I have had problem in the past losing query data or temorary
disconnects durring times of heavy usage of our database using
onsoctcp. I am not sure what to use.
