Does the ADABASE C API allow you to connect to any platform?

Hi
I am new to ADABAS and have downloaded the community addition for windows.

We are using the C client api to connect to ADABAS databases.

Does the C API allow me to connect to any ADABAS database on any platform, eg mainframe, unix and windows?

In theory yes, but in order to access a remote database(s) you will need Entire Net-work. For more information: http://www.softwareag.com/corporate/products/adabas/portfolio/add_ons/distributed.asp

The API is the same across platforms.

However, you will have to run your program(s) on the target system, you will NOT be able to run a program on Windows and talk to a mainframe or Unix database, this would require a middleware-piece called Entire Net-Work.
