Step 3 - Database connection details

There are two possible ways for giving the details: you can give the data below the General menu, or you can give the connection string below the Advanced menu. In case you give the connection string, it overwrites the data given below the General menu.

In this example we give the connection string under the Advanced menu:
Driver={SQL Anywhere 17}; Host=; Server=DBtest; port=2683; db=DBtest; uid=root; pwd=qwe123;
  • Driver={SQL Anywhere 17}; -The type of the SQL Anywhere driver
  • Host=; - the IP address
  • Server=DBtest; - the required server
  • Port=2683; - you can reach the database on the given IP address with the port number
  • Database=DBtest; - the name of the database that stores the contacts
  • User ID=root; - the username with which you can connect to the database
  • Password=qwe123; - the password that belongs to the previously given username
