SSL Configuration missing from Advanced Tab (Trial)

SSL Configuration missing from Advanced Tab (Trial)

Postby williamatwork » Tue 16 Sep 2014 02:33

Hello there,

I'm attempting to evaluate LinqConnect for my organization, downloaded the trial version (not the express version) and have been trying and failing to find SSL settings in the DevArt LinqConnect Model. I'm attempting to connect to a Heroku Postgres DB, which requires SLL to be true, and despite what I read in your documentation, I don't have that ability on the Advanced Tab. I don't seem to have any way to configure SSL, thus cannot make a connection to continue testing the trial.

Am I missing something?

Thanks.

William

LinqConnect includes the Express editions of our data providers (e.g., dotConnect for PostgreSQL). Express edition of dotConnect for PostgreSQL bundled with LinqConnect provides basic connectivity features.
To be able to work with the specific options of the providers (SSL, SSH, etc.) it is necessary to install the Professional editions of these providers:
http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/postgresql/editions.html
http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/postgresql/docs/?SecureConnections.html
http://www.devart.com/linqconnect/docs/?Requirements.html

You can download dotConnect for PostgreSQL Professional Trial to see if it suits your needs: http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/postgresql/download.html

Thanks for that reply.

So, I purchased and downloaded Version 4.4.582 of LinqConnect Professional, and still don't see an SSL setting on the Advanced tab. I tried uninstalling Pro completely and reinstalling it, but my Advanced tab still doesn't give me the ability.

Can you point me to what I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks

I guess the other question is... If I buy a professional version of LinqConnect, does that come with a professional version of DotConnect built-in? I was assuming it would. But now I'm wondering if it doesn't for some reason.

If not, can you explain why not?

Thanks.

LinqConnect Standard provides support only for SQL Server. LinqConnect Professional includes the Express editions (not the Professional) of our data providers (i.e. dotConnect for Oracle, dotConnect for PostgreSQL, dotConnect for MySQL, dotConnect for SQLite) and supports the corresponding databases. Please refer to http://www.devart.com/linqconnect/editions.html
As we have said you above, the Express edition of dotConnect for PostgreSQL (or any other our data provider) which is bundled with LinqConnect provides only basic connectivity features:
http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/postgresql/editions.html (see the Express edition column)

If you need more advanced support for PostgreSQL, you should use dotConnect for PostgreSQL Professional. With dotConnect for PostgreSQL Professional you will be able to use bundled Entity Developer for creating Entity Framework and LinqConnect models for PostgreSQL databases, get specific features such as SSL, SSH, etc.: http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/postgresql/editions.html

If you are going to work only with PostgreSQL, dotConnect for PostgreSQL Professional Edition would be preferable for you, because it has more advanced PostgreSQL support, LinqConnect and Entity Framework support.

If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us.
