INFOConnect database
A file (IC32.CFG) usually located in the Gateway folder that contains information about all the INFOConnect packages that have been installed, as well as all the path templates, library channels, and paths that have been created.

INFOConnect Manager
The application that runs in the background each time you run an INFOConnect product and that controls interaction between accessories and transports.

You can also use this application to create, modify, and delete paths; set administrator and user-level security; control user access to configuration; and set user preferences. INFOConnect Manager also lets you switch between sessions, clear sessions, and view session status.

At the top of the path tree is an icon for the server where the INFOConnect database is located (such as C:\WINNT). As you create paths, those paths also appear in the tree.

pooled connection path
A path that contains configuration data for multiple connections to a host.

single connection path
A path that contains configuration data for a single connection to a host.
