Title: How do I set up c-tree client/server file access?

Question: 


How do I set up c-tree for remote file access?


Answer:


To use c-tree in client/server mode, you simply need to start ctsrvr on the server and then set the appropriate iscobol.properties and ctree.conf settings on the client. 

Start ctsrvr on the server.

Test the server by running ctadmn from the same machine and use the following username/password: admin/ADMIN.

The isCOBOL Framework looks for the c-tree configuration between configuration properties if:

  • the c-tree version is 9.5.49790 or greater
  • the property iscobol.ctree.new_config is set to true

For example, use the following in iscobol.properties:
iscobol.file.index=ctree

iscobol.file.index.server=FAIRCOMS@myserver.mydomain.com


The isCOBOL Framework looks for c-tree configuration in the c-tree configuration file if:

  • the c-tree version is less than 9.5.49790
  • the property iscobol.ctree.new_config is set to false

For example, use the following in the ctree.conf:

SERVER_000=FAIRCOMS@myserver.mydomain.com,,,0

Note that the ctree.conf file is the file specified in the CTREE_CONF environment variable, or the ctree.conf file in the current working directory, or /etc/ctree.conf, whichever is the first to exist. 

Replace myserver.mydomain.com above with your that will resolve from the client machine. To test this, you could "ping myserver.mydomain.com" from the client.

Note that the default server name is FAIRCOMS. You can change this with the SERVER_NAME variable in ctsrvr.cfg on the server.
