Application of the no-direct-connect option causes a database (gateway) to reject logons from a networked client, and instead requires a mainframe connection or a connection through Unity.

You can restrict direct logons by specifying the DN of a:

  • Teradata user name (tdatUser object) or directory user name (directory principal)
  • Teradata profile name (tdatProfile object)
  • Network group (tdatNetworkGroup object)
