Two configuration files are central to AcuXDBC. By default, they are named acuxdbc.cfg and net.ini. In local configurations, only acuxdbc.cfg is used. Network installations require both configuration files. In this case, acuxdbc.cfg resides on the server and net.ini resides on the client.
Configuration files provide you with two main benefits:
When creating DSNs on network clients, you don't have to configure each DSN individually. Instead, just point to a configuration file on the server.
When you need to change your AcuXDBC configuration, you can modify the configuration file as needed without changing individual DSNs.
