Configuring Your Server for Remote Access

By default, the remote access configuration parameter is set to 1 when you install SAP ASE, which allows the server to execute remote procedure calls to the Backup Server.

For security reasons, you may want to disable remote access except when dumps and loads are taking place. To disable remote access, use:
sp_configure "allow remote access", 0

Before you perform a dump or load, reenable remote access:

sp_configure "allow remote access", 1

allow remote access is dynamic and does not require a restart of SAP ASE to take effect. Only a system security officer can set allow remote access.
