Much of my work for my employer is done at home after normal work hours, when I can access systems much faster because users are not logging on and off of the network. So how do you go about accessing your systems securely?


The answer to this can be anything from using a full-blown VPN to something as simple as tunneling and port forwarding across SSH (Secure Shell) and VNC (Virtual Network Computing).

Partner TechTip: Embedded SQL Is Just Plain Messy. Is There a Better Way?

Have you ever avoided using SQL in your RPG programs because embedded SQL is a hassle and it's just easier to do it the old-fashioned way? Have you ever wished your RPG programs could access data from Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle? Do you work with multiple databases and multiple SQL client tools? What about Java and PHP? Both use embedded SQL. Are you using them yet?


SQL(snap) simplifies SQL tasks and turns hours into a few clicks.
