allow remote access

allow remote access controls logins from remote SAP ASEs. The default value of 1 allows SAP ASE to communicate with Backup Server.

Note: Setting the value to 0 disables server-to-server RPCs. Since SAP ASE communicates with Backup Server via RPCs, setting this parameter to 0 makes it impossible to back up a database.

Since other system administration actions are required to enable remote servers other than Backup Server to execute RPCs, leaving this option set to 1 does not constitute a security risk.
