Hey everyone:

I have a successful Interbase XE3 database running on a windows machine in our office.

I would like to access this from my home office.
Is it really just as easy as finding the ip address, opening a port and updating my client application?

Is there an article or video showing this setup that you know of?

BTW: I'm using C++ and rad studio XE6 " for now ".
Many of the examples are Delphi. Nothing against Delphi, but most of our work is in C++.

Yes, although odds are you will need to forward port 3050 to your server on your
router. If your office does not have a permanent IP address you can create a
DNS for it using one of the many free dns services (I use
https://freedns.afraid.org/). Then you just need to update that with your
current ISP address. I have a little web service that check if the DNS ip
address matched my IP address every 10-15 minutes and updates it when it
changes, they actually rarely change
