Security issues

When establishing a connection to a remote Adaptive Server, Client-Library functions are used instead of a site handler when either cis_rpc_handling or set transactional_rpc is on. This method of establishing connections prevents the remote server from distinguishing these connections from those of other clients. Thus, any remote server security configured on the remote server to allow or disallow connections from a given server does not take effect.

Another Adaptive Server with Component Integration Services enabled cannot use trusted mode for remote server connections. This forces the Adaptive Server to be configured with all possible user accounts if it is going to be used with Component Integration Services.
