SqlCeReplication.DistributorAddress Property

Specifies the network address used when the SQL Server Reconciler is connecting to the Distributor.

Namespace: System.Data.SqlServerCe
Assembly: System.Data.SqlServerCe (in system.data.sqlserverce.dll)


Public Property DistributorAddress As String
public string DistributorAddress { get; set; }
property String^ DistributorAddress {
    String^ get ();
    void set (String^ value);
/** @property */
public String get_DistributorAddress ()

/** @property */
public void set_DistributorAddress (String value)
public function get DistributorAddress () : String

public function set DistributorAddress (value : String)

Property Value

The network address used when connecting to the Distributor.


DistributorAddress is required only when DistributorNetwork is set to a value other than DefaultNetwork.

Specify this property to indicate how the SQL Server Reconciler communicates with the Distributor. For example, if the SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP1 Server Agent and the Distributor are located on two different systems and these systems communicate over the Internet, DistributorNetwork could be set to TcpipSockets, and DistributorAddress could be set to a specific IP address. If the DistributorNetwork is TcpipSockets or MultiProtocol using TCP/IP, then the DistributorNetwork value is in the form of 'IP address,port number' (for example, ',1433').

If none of the Distributor connection properties are specified, it is assumed that the Publisher and Distributor are on the same instance of SQL Server, and Publisher connection properties are used when connecting to the Distributor. However, if you set any of the Distributor connection properties, you must set all of the required Distributor properties.
