Tribon Data Base superserver and subserver


The client-server access to a data bank located on a remote machine is based on ONC RPC (Open Network Computing Remote Procedure Calls). In order to provide access to data bank located on the server we must have the following Windows services running on the server machine:

  • PowerRPC Portmapper
  • TRIBON M1 DB Service

TRIBON M1 DB Service is what we call "superserver". Its executable file is - ea312.exe.

MBM Open Source Project - Accomodation for Tribon M2 / M3


This project originaly was created for demonstration purposes at the very beginning of Vitesse, just when it was implemented for Tribon structure functionality. At that time there was no idea to make it open source project, neither to update it further because we expected that Tribon Solutions will create an accommodation module in near furture.
