TCP/IP Camouflage (Deprecated)

Previous versions of FairCom DB provided TCP/IP communication protocol support that could be camouflaged by adding COMM_PROTOCOL FETCPIP to ctsrvr.cfg and building a special matching client-side library. This "Camouflage" added a small level of security for Client/Server applications. CAMO or "Camouflage" is an older, legacy method of hiding data, which is not a standards-conforming encryption scheme, such as AES. It is not intended as a replacement for Advanced Encryption or other security systems.

Please note that, starting with FairCom DB V11.5, this technology has been deprecated and the FairCom DB Server technology now supports TLS communication encryption, discussed in the Advanced File Encryption (Advanced File Encryption, Advanced Encryption) section.
